Storyline

After a long night of wandering, Fred wakes up in the middle of nowhere, baked by the Texas sun. Stumbling home, he finds his friends Bill and Duck are none too happy that he missed his own going away party. But something mysterious happened the night before. Fred is ready to tackle his demons and stay in town-to face the mistakes of his life and make them right. Little does he know that his announced departure has created a maelstrom of unrest amongst his friends-a breeding ground for truth. Walking into a hornet's nest of revelations, the friends he thought he knew turn Fred's world upside down. In the wake of this extraordinary day, four life-long friends say the words they've never had the courage to say, and learn truths about themselves and each other that will change the nature of their relationships forever. "It's kind of like therapy, only with guns and booze." A story about finding truth and self-worth by any means necessary, an unusual love rectangle which takes viewers ... Written by Anonymous

Explosive revelation, classic structure

This film was recommended to me by a friend and I am very grateful to him for pointing it out to me. I loved it. As the story unfolded, I sensed there was something very special about the writing. Some films written directly for the screen are not that well-thought out, but this one, based on the play "Pluck The Day" is very well done. A great script worked in this director's favor. Seeing the world these people inhabited, their assumptions, their fears, their insecurities was so fascinating. It was a window on friendship, on trust, on love and loss. After significant revelations, we find that the most sobering shock is that our lives can no longer continue as they have before, and so, following classic structure, our narrative ends with a departure.
