A modern-day couple, a sex tape…and robotic bees.

Alex has lofty dreams, whether it’s solving the world’s bee crisis, or creating a celebrity-driven movie without any actual celebrities. Every day brings new ideas; new inventions. One of them has to eventually pay off. Alex’s wife Katie is more grounded…and quite pregnant. Feet firmly on the ground, she makes the practical decisions (do they have life insurance?), while trying to help Alex find the path to becoming a stronger husband and eventual father. But, when Alex’s mom innocently uploads a sex video from his teen years to Facebook, Alex’s journey to adulthood may need to accelerate a bit. Real-life couple Katie and Alex Orr (Blood Car, Cinequest 2007) create a raunchy comedic portrait of the modern-day couple.
