Holding it together when all is falling apart...from the inside out.
Appropriate behavior maintains social order.
Willpower maintains appropriate behavior.
Sometimes, willpower just isn't enough.
Filmed throughout New York City, WHAT'S UP is bursting with the hilarious stories of people who have struggled to maintain order at a time when the central part of their lives was churning with chaos.
WHAT'S UP tackles an unusual -- though universal -- subject. While we've all been unfortunate enough to find ourselves in similar circumstances, the storytellers in WHAT'S UP manage to find a unique humor in their shared predicament.
Intestinal fortitude will never be viewed in quite the same way again.
