Synopsis

The Renders are in the adjustment business. Noah is an insurance adjuster who takes care of the psychological and physical needs of shocked clients. Hera, his wife, is a cultural adjuster: who works at the Provincial Censor Board. When a bizarre couple pays them to vacate their home for a 'film shoot,' the Renders take up residence in the motel that houses Noah's clients and discover just how maladjusted their lives - and those of others - can be.
