Alex Sher­man – Zick­lin is a midlev­el mar­ket­ing exec­u­tive raised in the hip­pie moun­tain ham­let of Ojai, whose wife Fig­gy’s four­teenth TV pilot becomes a huge Emmy – win­ning hit. Overnight, he’s sucked into a mad show busi­ness vor­tex, quit­ting his job to become the fam­i­ly’s domes­tic first respon­der.” Along the way, Alex must nego­ti­ate the demands of his Jew­ish in – laws and his own mys­tic – folksing­ing moth­er. Plus One tells the sto­ry of a care­tak­ing sup­port goy, his bread­win­ning Jew­ish wife, and the fast – chang­ing roles of par­ents and partners.
