Once an acclaimed New York playwright, Nate (Jemaine Clement, Flight of the Conchords) can’t finish his new play. And when his wife (Maria Dizzia, Orange is the New Black) leaves him, taking their son with her, he becomes desolate. Broke and unable to pay the rent, Nate begrudgingly moves to New Jersey to live with his father (Elliott Gould), in a retirement community. There, Nate’s misery is tested by his dad’s endless jokes. When he stumbles across the senior citizens’ community-theater troupe, he tries to give directing – and human interaction – another shot.
