A year after his brother Tom's death, Jack (Mark Duplass Humpday), an emotionally unstable slacker, is offered by Tom's ex-girlfriend Iris (Emily Blunt) to take a vacation at her family cabin in the Pacific Northwest so he can seek catharsis in solitude. Once there, however, Jack runs into Iris' sister Hannah, a lesbian reeling from the abrupt end of a seven-year relationship and who finds solace in the affable Jack's unexpected presence. After a long night of drinking that ends with an awkward sexual incident, Jack's bumpy road to recovery is made worse by Iris' sudden presence at the cabin the next morning and the progression of ever-complicated relationships that is then set into motion. With raw, funny and emotional performances from an all-star cast, director Lynn Shelton (My Effortless Brilliance) once again honestly explores the complexities of interpersonal relationships with remarkable humor, sensitivity and warmth.

Following the success of her Sundance award winning film HUMPDAY, Lynn Shelton weaves another compellingly human story in YOUR SISTER'S SISTER. Lost in an emotional funk one year after his brother's death, Jack (Mark Duplass) takes his best friend Iris (Emily Blunt) up on her offer for a reflective week of solitude at her family's remote island retreat.

Iris shows up the next morning unannounced, setting in motion an emotionally twisted tale of sisters, brothers, and best friends.
