Isaac gets home from serving in the marines to find war has broken out back home. In a nondescript town somewhere in Central Valley â€“ America, Isaacâ€™s mom Paige is blowing up entrenched routines.
Fed up with domestic patriarchy, Paige has stopped washing, cleaning and caring for their ailing father, who recently suffered a stroke. She reigns supreme.
Ally to their motherâ€™s new regime is Isaacâ€™s sibling Max. Only last time Isaac checked, Max was Maxine. Once the breadwinner, Isaacâ€™s dad has toppled from the head of the household to the bottom of the pile â€“ a make-upped puppet emasculated by Paige once and for all.
In a cheap house made of plywood and glue, notions of masculinity and femininity become weapons with which to defeat the old order. But in Taylor Macâ€™s sly, subversive comedy, annihilating the past doesnâ€™t always free you from it.
