Starring: Ike Barinholtz, Tiffany Haddish, John Cho, Billy Magnussen, Carrie Brownstein, Meredith Hagner, Jon Barinholtz, Nora Dunn, Chris Ellis


Dark comedy written and directed by Ike Barinholtz. Set in a politically divided America, the story follows Chris (Ike Barinholtz), a high-strung 24-hour progressive news junkie, and his more levelheaded wife Kai (Tiffany Haddish), who learn that citizens are being asked to sign a loyalty oath to the President. As the Thanksgiving deadline to sign approaches, the combination of sparring relatives, Chris’s own agitation and the unexpected arrival of two government agents, Peter and Mason (John Cho and Billy Magnussen), sends an already tense holiday dinner gathering completely off the rails.
