A coming out gone wrong, an angry gnome, and two hundred pounds of Swedish meatballs: welcome to IKEA, friends. Two couples venture through their local Swedish superstore and become trapped in a blue and yellow purgatory, unable to escape until they solve the problems in their ailing relationships. Will they find the arrows that lead them out of this relationship inferno that is IKEA?
