Synopsis

In this moving dark comedy, Matthew Broderick plays Ben, a failed children's folk singer and less-than-extraordinary weekend dad. Ben gets pleasure from smoking weed and playing chess with his Senegalese roommate, Ibou. When Ibou suddenly falls ill, Ben's pessimistic worldview seems unequivocally confirmed. But when Ibou's sister takes his place in their apartment, what starts as an awkward living arrangement becomes something Ben did not expect...
