Based on modern day experiences of love, dating and navigating the often-challenging world, The Two Kids That Blow Sh*t Up tells the story of 9-year-old kids Max and Diana who meet on the day their parents start having an affair. Through decades of their parents' disorderly relationship of getting together, breaking up, getting married and then divorced, they're relentlessly forced together and become fast friends. Seeing each other through all of life's epic fails, the two try and figure out how to fall in love without making the same mistakes as their parents.
