While at her job as a refrigerator repair dispatcher, Karen’s world is rocked when she takes a call from a customer she suspects might be the father she never knew. She enlists Megan, a coworker, to pose as a mechanic, and together they embark on a hilarious “service call” in search of the truth about her past. Meanwhile, Megan must choose between the stability of her longtime girlfriend and the thrill of a new love.

In the course of one exceptional Fourth of July, Karen encounters her father's closeted lover, a sister addicted to betting, a brother struggling with adolescence and, if she can get out of jail in time, her father. The provisional nature of families is the theme that drives this quirky, funny, sweet-hearted film. As Karen muses: “I believe the journey you take earns you your name. And you can create that name any day.” [language]
