Faced with the reality that her only child will 'flee the nest' for college, documentary funder-turned-filmmaker Lyda Kuth gets anxious not only about her aspirations for her daughter but also about her relationship with her husband of 20 years.

What is the real meaning of love, marriage, and long-term commitment? She queries non-experts and experts alike, such as indie filmmaker Josh Safdie (Go Get Some Rosemary), playwright and budding rock star Kyle Jarrow (A Very Merry Unauthorized Children's Scientology Pageant), and author and scholar Stephanie Coontz (The Social Origins of Private Life: A History of American Families) about their successes and failures of the heart. Love and Other Anxieties is both personal and poetic. With the help of editor/co-writer Lucia Small (My Father, the Genius), Kuth has crafted a meditative documentary that is poignantly intimate yet surprisingly universal.
