The series revolves around the lives of a group of friends whose little group will be rocked when the couple that brought them together, Alex and Dave, break up. This leaves the rest of the group (Max, Brad, Jane and Penny) in an awkward position of either trying to stay together as friends or having to choose sides.
Alex and Dave decide to stay friends, but there are many more complications down the road. Such as single friend Penny's long-suppressed feelings for Dave and their openly gay friend Max worries the breakup will traumatize him more than his parent's divorce. Meanwhile, Alex's sister, Jane and her husband Brad, a suburban couple desperately trying to start a family are now so shocked by what happened, they are having trouble concentrating on their plans of trying to conceive their first child.
