In this “sequel” to all romantic comedies, the honeymoon is over. First came love. Then came marriage. Then separation, and to add insult to injury, now an IRS audit.

Unemployed, tailed by the IRS and hilariously pathetic without the love of his life, Jake tries his best to drown himself with booze and girls. Ally tries to stay afloat with work, and yoga where she meets the enigmatic yogi, True (Billy Beck.) Despite both their efforts to move on and escape their reality, Jake and Ally are forced to sit and deal with the audit process, and each other. Receipts are more than money spent… they’re a record of memories made. As they sort through the last years of receipts and the memories they inevitably carry, the inharmonious couple begins to understand what went wrong.

‘Starting From Scratch’ merges comedy with drama in an honest depiction of two individuals simply fumbling, at times tumbling through life, and discovering that when it comes to relationships, hindsight is 50/50.
