A hilarious comedy about the absurdities of motherhood.
Jessie is Ivy League-educated and a prestigious lawyer; Lina has a night-school nursing degree and terrible credit -but they have one huge thing in common: they've been cracked open by the love they feel for their newborns. The two new moms have agreed to meet for a naptime coffee in their adjoining yards where both their baby monitors get reception. A fast unlikely friendship is born over the trials and tribulations of new motherhood. Reluctantly, the duo becomes a trio when an ultra-wealthy neighbor asks if his wife, Adrienne, can join them. Afterall, she is another new mom who is "having a hard time." But how could a woman from Sands Point, one of the most expensive Great Gatsby-esque neighborhoods in the whole country, possibly be "having a hard time"? In this laugh out loud comedy with dark edges, Cry It Out takes an honest look at the complexities of parenthood, the power of female friendship, the dilemma of going back to work, and the effects of class disparity on motherhood in America.
