Synopsis

Danielle (Rachel Sennott) is a college student who has been lying to her parents about her academic struggles. On top of that, she has a sugar daddy named Max (Danny Deferrari), whom she also keeps secret. Danielle goes to a family shiva, a week-long mourning period in Judaism. At the shiva, Danielle is surrounded by judgmental family and friends, who are constantly questioning her about her appearance and lack of post-grad plans.

Things get more troublesome for Danielle when she not only runs into her confident ex-girlfriend Maya (Molly Gordon), who is being applauded by everyone for getting into law school, but Max, who is there with his wife Kim (Dianna Agron) and their child. As the day goes on, Danielle struggles to keep control of her insecurities, but soon learns that the ones who have been constantly questioning her have secrets of their own.
