About the film

Comedy — 2013 — English

"Fast, funny, fierce, multi-layered..." – IndieWire

Celebrated New York playwright Harold Blumenthal succumbed to cardiac arrest while laughing at his own joke. Now, Harold’s estranged and jealous brother Saul must confront his personal hang-ups to deliver himself from an epic bout of constipation. Meanwhile, Saul’s wife Cheryl and son Ethan must grapple with their own personal obstacles through a set of circumstances that might as well have been lifted from one of Harold’s plays. Hilarious, delightful and heart-warming.
