Stars: Laura Prepon, Bryan Greenberg and Dreama Walker
In this ensemble comedy set entirely inside a kitchen in Silverlake, a birthday party is about to start.
The party belongs to that of Jennifer (Laura Prepon), who’s about to turn 30. But she is in no mood to party today. She has just left her job, as well as her cheating boyfriend, Paul (Bryan Greenberg). Her sardonic little sister Penny (Dreama Walker) has shown up pregnant and with a life-changing decision to make. And she is pretty sure she is too old to still be living with her creepy roommate.
But her friend Stan (Matt Bush) has put a lot of work into making this party the perfect tribute to her milestone birthday, and she is trying her best to at least have some fun. However, what starts out as a well-intentioned day of celebration quickly spirals into an ill-fated farce, from a misspelled birthday cake to dueling backyard bands and a manic-depressive party photographer. And it is amidst all this chaos that Jennifer is trying to figure out what it means to turn 30 and how to start the next chapter of her life.
