Lena and ten other women could not be more excited to celebrate Barbie’s 35th birthday. When an unexpectedly huge bill arrives, the happy birthday dissolves into drama. As Lena works tirelessly to align the group, she ultimately reaches a point of no return. The Bill comically celebrates friends from all walks of life, as they react to an experience that is all too common.
