Feeling overworked by her children, mother of three Allyson decides to go on a moms' night out with her friends, Izzy and Sondra. The three expect a night to unwind while Allyson's husband, Sean, takes care of all the kids. After their reservation is canceled things go from bad to worse when Allyson's sister-in-law, Bridget, realizes that her infant son, Phoenix, is missing. The four travel across the city looking for the child and ultimately learning to quit blaming others for their own problems. While all this is going on, their husbands attempt to care for the children with disastrous results.
