“Lex and Mani are a happily married young couple, running their dream artisanal bakery in Los Angeles and excited about starting a family together. A trip to a tropical island resort for a friend’s destination wedding, coinciding with Lex’s ovulation cycle, feels like the perfect opportunity to conceive. But good vibes and high hopes are cut short when, shortly after their arrival to paradise, Lex accidentally drops her friend’s baby in front of all their friends. Paradise becomes purgatory for our couple as recriminations, passive-aggression and old wounds begin to permeate the island reunion and throw Mani and Lex’s future into deep uncertainty.”
The Hulu comedy hails from executive producers Jay and Mark Duplass.
Along with the couple, a group of individuals travel to a tropical island resort. The entire situation changes when the girl drops her friend’s baby in front of the group. Even when it turns out that the baby is safe, a group member starts to mock the girl’s predicament by calling it ‘awful’.
