Wilson and Ruby have the picture-perfect marriage. But while Wilson idealizes his marriage, Ruby worries that he ignores the controversy of his job as a police officer in the midst of the BlackLivesMatter movement, smiling through pain Ruby wishes he would share with her. When their family friend loses her husband to the quick trigger of a white cop, the family dynamic fractures. Tired of feeling helpless and trapped in her Huxtable-like existence, Ruby has been hatching a secret plan to fix the American gun problem while pushing her husband to break out of his plastic shell. Can Wilson see life through Ruby’s truth and still be the husband and father his mother and he never had? This quickfire tragicomedy explores manhood and guns and what it means to “live your truth” in an America built on lies.
