This outrageous and dark comedy explores the pursuit of one's own happiness in a close up, candid look at the unfair, undeniable and really shit parts of the human condition that keep us together and tear us apart, probably at the same time. "Dear God. Hi. Sorry about the last fifty years. Just checking in to say that it would be great if you could remind my husband that he has a penis. And a wife. With a vagina. That works. That's it. I don't think I'm asking for much. Thanks. Amen."
