The story is about a young couple, Olivia and Gabe. They’ve been dating since college. Now they’re moving into their first apartment together. They packed up everything they own and journeyed halfway across the country from New York City to start new jobs and a new life together in Chicago. Move-in day doesn't go exactly as planned, however, when both sets of parents show up unexpectedly to help.
