Manhattan entrepreneur Jake (Nick Kroll) is about to launch a product that will make him a success — only to find it fails, costing him a fortune, most of his friends, his girlfriend and his credibility.

Needing comfort, Jake retreats to his childhood home, now occupied by his sister Justine (Rose Byrne), her husband Danny (Bobby Cannavale) and their three-year-old son, Teddy. At first reluctant to welcome Jake into their lives, Justine, who's pregnant with a second child, agrees to let Jake stay if he agrees to take care of Teddy during the weekdays.

Although Jake's attempts at childcare are haphazard at first, he slowly comes to care for his young nephew.
