When Mary (Amy Seimetz) returns to work after her maternity leave, Paul (Thomas J. Madden) is in charge of their “spirited” baby, Pearl, as he struggles to write a screenplay. Mary misses Pearl terribly, but her benefits are the only security to family has. As Paul’s disinterest in his work grows, money becomes tighter and his attachment to Pearl intensifies – Mary is left out in the cold. It all comes to a head one day when Paul’s good nature gets the best of him and he quickly becomes the jerk he thought he’d never be.
