(mbc.net) At 35, Tripp has an interesting job, a hip car, a passion for sailing, and a great house - trouble is he lives with his parents.

They want him out, so they hire Paula, an "interventionist," who has a formula to launch him out of his parent’s home.

It's worked up to now, but it gets complicated when Tripp thinks she's getting too serious.

Meanwhile one of Tripp’s pals is attracted to Paula's deadpan, semi-alcoholic roommate, who's plagued by a mockingbird.

Too many secrets may ruin the launch, and what if Paula really likes him?
