As she dutifully witnesses her child attempting to play football, Lisa Wetbottom (Dawn Luebbe) notes that her fellow soccer mom Jill Davies (Jocelyn DeBoer) has a new baby. ‘Do you want her? She’s great!’ Jill proffers, proceeding to hand over the child to her friend. So begins this electrifying absurdist comedy, a weird and wonderful dayglo portrait of fear and self-loathing in American suburbia. Comedians DeBoer and Luebbe collaborate to deliver one of the most distinctive debut features of the year, a film that confidently displays a true gift for satirical insight and bizarre black comedy.
