Two couples meet over the proverbial backyard fence, but when Ben and Mary invite fresh-from-rehab Kenny and Sharon over on a hot summer afternoon for a get-to-know-you barbecue, the result isn't what anyone expected. Secrets are spilled and raw truth exposed in this bold, aggressive, and sexy comedy about how the things we covet only get in our way. This is a story of disillusionment leavened with humor, and destruction tempered by hope.
