About the film:
Brian is a smart, well-educated, but unambitious twenty-something who works in a mattress store, struggles with depression, and feels adrift in his life. The one thing he knows is that he wants to adopt a Chinese baby, and is on a wait list to do so. Then he meets Happy, a hot, potty-mouthed girl who he falls head over heels for, but who has deep reservations about dating a guy who might be about to become a dad. Together, they negotiate their increasing intimacy, and the appearances of their many eccentric relatives, as Brian awaits the call from the adoption agency.
Rated R for language, some sexual content and violence.
