Wise plays Jake Sturdy, a once-successful writer, who cares for his disabled and hormonal teenage son, Joey, with the support of a motley crew of friends and family, each figuring out their own lives. But when Jake is struck by an unexpected disaster, he is forced to confront some difficult questions about who’s really looking after who.
