Unhappily married Chrissy and Ian await the arrival of party guests - Chrissy’s workmates from the university astronomy faculty. The party is celebrating a never-before-seen comet passing Earth, a truly special, once-in-a-lifetime event that not even the broken washing machine can ruin.

When rockstar astronomer Scott arrives, he has apocalyptic news: the comet is on a collision course with Earth. With the end of the world imminent, the trio face some harsh truths about love, fidelity, sacrifice, and the return policies for whitegoods.
