"Writer-director Stephen Pierce Ringer maintains proper emotional temperature throughout the film's tonal shifts"
  —Los Angeles Daily News

Just before embarking on a multi-city concert tour, talented sisters Elle and Joy (played by real-life sisters Aly and AJ Michalka) plan a going away party with family and friends. Over the course of a week in Laurel Canyon, divorced parents, former beaus, nagging business managers, and a variety of unexpected events derail their festive planning. When their guests finally arrive, the celebration the sisters had envisioned does not go at all as planned, with the party taking several strange turns that leave everyone unsettled. In the aftermath of this fateful night, Elle and Joy are left with the sobering yet liberating truth that they can only rely on one another.

Directed by Stephen Ringer, 2015, U.S.A., 89 mins.
