Synopsis
JACK (34) and SUE (30) are a millennial couple living in Brooklyn. They’re sitting together but not talking, each consumed by their technology. They have a meandering couple’s argument. When it is interrupted by a text, they are sucked back into their phones.

At a bar, Jack and Sue talk to RAPH (30s), a socially-conscious millennial hippie, who tells them about his projects and his cabin upstate. Jack and Sue discuss Raph’s tech-less lifestyle. They are inspired to be better people.

In the morning, Jack and Sue are back on the couch consumed by their phones. Sue realizes their obsession. They decide to go away for a week without technology. Sue copies down a self-help list she finds online called “How to Be a Better We.” They pack and drive out of Brooklyn.

They stop at a gas station and turn off their phones. A fleet of shiny orbs fly across the sky, but they don’t see it.

They arrive at the cabin. On a hike, Sue tells Jack about the self-help list. Jack makes fun of her. They hear gunshots and screaming but don’t think anything of it.

That night, they see shooting stars. The shooting stars don’t look like normal shooting stars, but...
