Six months into Verona’s pregnancy, and after moving to Colorado to be next to Burt (John Krasinski)’s parents (as Verona’s parents are deceased), the elderly couple Jerry (Jeff Daniels) and Gloria (Catherine O’Hara) announce that they are moving to Antwerp, Belgium in June for two years- while Verona (Maya Rudolph) is due in July.

From then on begins a race for the young couple to find both a place where they can have friends, as well as a safe place to bring up a child. They run down a list of possible locations, and safe, would-be role models that they can raise a child around: Phoenix- where Verona’s former boss Lily (Allison Janney)and her husband Lowell (Jim Gaffian) live along with their two children, Tucson- where Verona’s sister Grace (Carmen Ejogo) lives and works as a concierge/guest representative at a hotel/resort, Madison- where her college buddy Ellen (Maggie Gyllenhaal) and her husband Roderick (Josh Hamilton) enforce a strange code in raising their baby and their toddler, Montreal- where they are impressed by almost all there is to the place, a quick detour to Miami… But ultimately they will know that they are home, once they get there…
