An honest and authentic comedy about what happens when twenty- something Brooklyn comedian Donna Stern (Jenny Slate) gets dumped, loses her job, and discovers she’s pregnant — just in time for Valentine’s Day! On stage, Donna has always been unapologetically herself, finding plenty of material in her everyday life. But now, as she grapples with an uncertain financial future, an unwanted pregnancy, and a surprising new suitor, she discovers that the most terrifying thing about adulthood isn’t facing it all on her own, it’s allowing herself to accept the support and love of others, and to be truly vulnerable. Never failing to find the comedy and humanity in each awkward situation she encounters, Donna finds out along the way what it means to be as brave in life as she is on stage. Also with David Cross, Jake Lacy, Gabby Hoffman, and Richard Kind. [mature]
