Unplugging is a romantic comedy about a married couple whose marriage begins to deteriorate. The couple still shares a home, but their gaze is permanently fixed on their technological devices. In real life had seen families like that. Talking in person has been so awkward that some people text each other even if they are in the same room. Their daughter’s like them, as her eyes are permanently mounted to her iPad to make it worse. Something needs to be done, or their family is set to fail.
Eva Longoria goes back to her Desperate Housewives roots as she plays the role of another wife with marital problems. This time around, the cause is not a Shirtless Gardener but her Smartphone instead.

Dan Dewerson (Matt Walsh) realizes something wrong with his Marriage. His wife Jeanine (Eva Longoria from Desperate Housewives) is always on Social Media. He works with his devices even if they are at home. The Spark is starting to dwindle as they have a non-existent sex life. The Couple concluded they needed to go on vacation without their technologies.
The Dewersons will try to rekindle their flame by having a technological detox. That means the two of them won’t be able to use their phones or iPads while on vacation in a remote mountain cabin. There are no smartphones, tablets, flip phones, or even landlines allowed!
Dan and Jeanine’s goal is to rekindle their relationship by taking advantage of the boredom and lack of access to the internet.
They believe it will motivate them to find what is missing from their Marriage.
A Vacation in a remote cabin is the option they chose. Nothing is more romantic than having the two without the kids and work interrupting, right? An Angry Raccoon and some Spy drones from the military would like to say no as an answer. Will this trip save their marriage?
