Sophie and Pete are neighbors — and kind of friends — who live in a generic apartment complex in Los Angeles. Sophie decides to take a road trip with Pete to pick up his sister from college in Phoenix. A not-so-humorous encounter with some roadkill leads to a joke about marriage, and somehow they get engaged. On the way home, their car breaks down and they get stranded in a peculiar little desert town, where Pete’s sister goes missing with a guy she meets in a bar. Suddenly lost and dependent on each other, Sophie and Pete learn that falling in love after you get engaged can be a lot scarier than getting married. Starring Matt Mider and Noël Wells (Saturday Night Live). [mature]
