Jess is having a bad day. She has discovered that she is pregnant and that her husband is cheating on her, so she has bought a gun to kill him, but is interrupted by her mother, Beatrice, who arrives to help with a party Jess has forgotten about, and to which she has invited a handful of strangers. Events unfurl at a furious pace as the party guests take over, Beatrice almost murders Jess’ dad, and Jess’ husband finally returns to the mayhem.
