After many years of marriage, Walter and Madge have grown apart. They don’t even bother to argue anymore, even though they can’t agree which way is up—literally. Walter lives on the floor, and Madge lives on the ceiling; or if you ask Madge, it’s Walter who lives on the ceiling. They live separate, parallel lives in the same house, never talking, barely even looking at each other.

When Walter comes across a long-lost memento of their wedding day, he tries to reignite their old romance. But their comfortable equilibrium comes crashing down, and Walter and Madge must overcome their old habits or face the disintegration of their marriage.
