Dispatched from his basement room on an errand for his widowed mother, slacker Jeff might discover his destiny (finally) when he spends the day with his unhappily married brother as he tracks his possibly adulterous wife.
When a depressed woman is burglarized, she finds a new sense of purpose by tracking down the thieves alongside her obnoxious neighbor. But they soon find themselves dangerously out of their depth against a pack of degenerate criminals.

About the script and the way it was performed, Duplass stated, "The way this worked, there (was) about a 50-page document that was the entire movie - the scene beats, everything, locations - except for the actual dialogue in the film. And most of the dialogue you see in the film is improvised. Although in certain scenes, where we have effects and things like that, Justin our writer [Justin Lader] would write out a version of that scene the night before, to give us a good guide, so we could have something to stick to."

This is listed on our cable service as a romantic comedy. It's not, it's better than that.
I agree with other reviewers that the less you know about it the better. It has what all great movies have - it makes you, no, it actually lets, you think about yourself, other people, and emotional situations in new and different ways.
Hard to believe you can get all that out of a such a small cast and such limited locations. Many thanks to the writer, the director, and the editor. Please, does anyone know where this was filmed??
Give this movie a watch and you'll see.
