Synopsis: Following failed attempts to conceive, Jason and Cynthia are close to getting a divorce. In an effort to save their marriage, they book a vacation to a couples’ therapy retreat called Eden. To save money, they encourage their friends to join them. Reluctantly, Dave and Ronnie, Joey and Lucy, and recently divorced Shane and his girlfriend Trudy agree.
Upon their arrival, they are sent to the west side of the island, as the east side of the island hosts a singles’ resort. During their therapy sessions, all four couples learn they have problems with their relationships — even Ronnie and Dave, who thought they were fine, need the therapy. They endure the resort owner Marcel’s odd methods, including swimming with sharks and yoga sessions with an amorous instructor. Slowly, cracks begin to surface and reach the point where each couple has to face the truth about their relationship. Are the squabbling couples able to sort out their problems? Does the retreat help them at all?
