For Jake Lew (James Huang) and Ally Clark (Elizabeth Sandy,) married life is blissful. They are young, attractive, and carefree in other words frivolous with money. It doesn't take long for financial hardship and blame to strike. As quickly as they fell for each other, they just as quickly find themselves on the brink of divorce. And then the IRS audit hits. Unemployed, tailed by the IRS and hilariously pathetic without the love of his life, Jake tries his best to drown himself with booze and girls. Ally tries to stay afloat with work, and yoga where she meets the enigmatic yogi, True (Billy Beck.) Despite both their efforts to move on and escape their reality, Jake and Ally are forced to sit and deal with the audit process, and each other. As they sort through the last years of receipts and the memories they inevitably carry, the inharmonious couple begins to understand what went wrong. 'Starting From Scratch' merges comedy with drama in an honest depiction of two individuals simply fumbling, at times tumbling through life, and discovering that when it comes to relationships, hindsight is 50/50.
