British writer Devorah Baum has to tour America with her first book – a guide to guilt,
paranoia, self-hatred, envy, and all the other feelings currently tearing our world
apart. A first-timer with two small kids in tow, she is stressed out. How can her
husband, help?
Probably not by making a film about the whole trip. Before long, the feelings laid bare
in Devorah's book get played out between them, revealing how much remains
stubbornly unreconstructed in our supposedly modern relationships.
Co-directed by and starring Josh Appignanesi and Devorah Baum in an auto-fictional
docu-comedy collaboration, it’s a breathtakingly honest marriage comedy on the
cusp between autofiction and documentary, it's a love letter to New York, literary life, and, er, Zadie Smith.
