Tim is a burned out stand up comedian making a stop in International Falls, Minnesota for a nightmare gig.  Dee is a hotel desk clerk and aspiring comic who finds her way into Tim’s room after the show.  Inter-cutting between their one night stand and Tim’s act, Dee seeks the truth behind the jokes.  What begins as an admitted innocuous frolic turns into a philosophical discussion of comedy, marriage, parenthood, religion, and dick jokes.  The line between comedy and tragedy is blurred as Tim and Dee eventually have to answer the inevitable post-coital question, “Now what?”  As comedian Marc Maron says, “Sometimes it’s not about the funny.  Sometimes it’s about the sad.”
