SYNOPSIS:  Keep calm and hurricane on. Almost-failed actress Lily and definitely-failed writer Daniel are a young married couple stuck in their Crown Heights, Brooklyn apartment after a recordbreaking hurricane becomes imminent. They kill time with screaming matches about failed dreams and potential infidelities until Lily's crazy/hot
best friend Amber appears and drags them downstairs to a raging 'hurricane' party featuring Jack, a wannabe Nazi-hunter and Chris, that classic specimen of the American Bro in love with Equinox.

Lily feels her marriage is crumbling faster than the hurricane's resolve to destroy New York, until Daniel comes up with a fiendishly clever (in his opinion) plan to help them work out their issues...
