Four characters (Steph, Greg, Kent and Carly) whose personalities barely match up, become entangled in one another’s lives in romantic, humorous and, sometimes, violent ways as they pursue a common denominator  happiness. However, such happiness does not come without tension, sacrifice and a little bit of humor.

For mature audiences only, due to strong language.
