David and Patrick throw an open mic to promote their shop; David gets nervous when Patrick states he will be performing. Johnny and Alexis rebrand the motel, but Stevie fears they are overexpanding. Moira tries to keep secret the gender of the Schitts' new baby.
When filthy-rich video store magnate Johnny Rose, his soap star wife Moira, and their two kids - über-hipster son David and socialite daughter Alexis - suddenly find themselves broke, they are forced to live in Schitt's Creek, a small, depressing town they once bought as a joke. With their pampered lives now abandoned, they must confront their new-found poverty and discover what it means to be a family, all within the rural city limits of their new home.
