This is a three person drama, taking place in a British flat during the pandemic, from January of 2020 through March of 2021. It involves He (James McAvoy) and She (Sharon Horgan of the TV series “Catastrophe”) and their ten-year-old son Artie (Samuel Logan). He and She talk to the camera, as if being profiled for a documentary, by way of group therapy, and as the months go by we see their shaky relationship go through many changes.
