When blind date newbie Aaron is set up with serial-dater Casey, a casual drink at a busy New York restaurant turns into a hilarious high-stakes dinner. As the date unfolds in real time, Casey and Aaron’s inner critics take on a life of their own as supportive best friends, manipulative exes and protective parents, materialize singing and dancing them through ice-breakers, appetizers and potential conversational land mines. Can this couple turn what could be a dating disaster into something special before the check arrives?
