With his mid-life marriage on rocky ground and a persistent case of writer’s block, dejected one-hit-author Jack Spencer (David Arquette) goes glamping (glamorous camping) with his wife Amanda (Amy Acker) in search of a spark. The isolated retreat suddenly becomes anything but private with the arrival of double-booking honeymoon hipsters and the return of the sexy super-hunk owner of the “resort”. While Amy seems excited by all of the charged romantic and sexual energy around them, a visibly derailed and frustrated Jack is clearly not. Desperate to find a way to get over his own flaws and failed ideals, Jack dives deep off the grid into a comedic exploration of love, failure, relevance, and miniature donkeys.
