SYNOPSIS: Think a rustic getaway with no cell service, internet or social media is a romantic way to repair your marriage and sex life? Think again. Meet Dan and Jeanine Dewerson. The only spark in Dan and Jeanine’s bedroom is from the wall socket, their daughter’s best friend is her iPad, and Dan’s not going to take it anymore. Dan’s solution – a quiet, relaxing weekend in a remote mountain town. No kids, no phones, no social media, only clean fresh air and lots of romance. But what starts as the perfect weekend quickly becomes a disastrous one with unearthly encounters, strong edibles, cranky locals, and of course a pesky one-eyed dog. Without GPS to guide them or social media to stave off their boredom, Dan and Jeanine are forced to reconnect with each other and the natural world. Can a “digital detox” really save their marriage and their sanity?
