Bent follows Alex (Amanda Peet) and Pete (David Walton), two couples who find themselves attracted to each others traits that would normally derail them from moving forward. Alex is a divorcee who works as a lawyer. She and her 8-year-old daughter Charlie (Joey King) live together trying to save money by moving into a smaller home. When she hires Pete as a contractor to remodel her kitchen,they share a connection that is attractive to both of them. Alex takes his recovering gambling addict and unapologetic womanizer things as a way of helping whereas he is not afraid to call out her flaws either.
On the surface, Alex and Pete could not be more different. The recently divorced Alex is a hard-working, high-strung lawyer who is raising her 10-year-old daughter, Charlie, as a single mom following her husband's incarceration for insider trading. Unwilling to let anything get in her way, she downsizes into a smaller house and hires charismatic Pete, a free-spirited ladies man and recovering gambling addict who desperately needs this gig with Alex to jumpstart his life -- and prove that he is no longer a screw-up. Upon hiring him, Alex quickly realizes that she has met her match in Pete, who -- along with his motley construction crew - will not only tear apart her kitchen, but transform her worldview in the process.
