Suze (Michaela Watkins, Casual, The Dropout) is a single mom whose entitled daughter has just left home for college. The two leads in this coming-of-perimenopausal-age comedy have dynamite chemistry.

When her only daughter leaves for college, Suze, a single mom who has lost her purpose, gets stuck taking care of her daughter's heartbroken ex-boyfriend who she can't stand. On her journey of self-discovery, Suze discovers what living purposefully really looks like, while making an unlikely bond along the way.

The directors Linsey Stewart and Dane Clark (a real-life couple) deliver a funny and heartwarming comedy-drama, that draws out laughs from very relatable circumstances on both sides of the generational gap, about the unexpected friendships that help you become your true self.
