Peter Ranos (George Vincent) is a struggling actor and out of work; his wife Ellie (Kristina Denton) works at a beauty salon. They are struggling financially and about to lose their home. Things go from bad to worse as Peter begins selling off various valuables in order to save their home. He even sells the stamp collection that belong to his deceased father, and the loss of his dad is something Peter has never gotten over. They were inseparable until his father died. Not only was he close to his dad, but Peter hasn’t spoken to God since his father passed. When Peter learns that Ellie is pregnant, the stress becomes almost unbearable, especially when his car is towed away and he has to pay a fine for having a garage sale without a permit. The low food supply, the near-empty gas tank, the emergency medical care, the late house payments are all examples of difficulties that many couples have faced at one time or another. The movie is one that most people can relate to.
