Middle aged Jonathan, Richard, Rob and Tim are friends from their college days, each who has had some modicum of success in his life, but each who is facing an issue resulting in dissatisfaction with his current lot. Divorced father Jonathan is a physician whose practice is largely made up of wealthy patients for who he writes prescriptions for drugs for recreational use in return for payola. Party boy Richard was once a novelist, but now resorts to teaching high school English to make a living. Stockbroker Ron is happily married with kids, but in providing for his family, he decided to steal from his clients which has now resulted in a probable indictment by the Securities Commission for embezzlement. And five years ago, openly bisexual Tim was the driver that caused an accident which killed both his sister and his boyfriend, the guilt surrounding which still remains with him.

I don't understand, I mean, is there something wrong with that?
You published a book. I'd love to be able...
I was like that. I was so fucking excited about this... and... about that. But you just, you think it's gonna be so fucking rosy! So fucking rosy!
Well Jonah's not like that. He doesn't think anything's gonna be some certain way. He just loves to write.
You don't have to speak for me...
You, you live in some sort of disallusionment! Because it's easier than being honest. What are you ...

I have just watched this film and i am blown away on every level. I think it is so real it is untrue. I would have paid 10 dollars. Maybe not everyone's cup of tea but i think it delivers, disturbs and makes you think about all kinds of stuff good and bad. I have read some other reviews and cannot for the life of me understand how negative some reviews are, It is only a film after all. In my opinion a brilliant film that will become a real cult film in time. I loved the camera use effects etc , very real , comes with a great cast and soundtrack also , I don't think the actors could have performed any better. Very convincing, I will recommend this film to all of my friends as a real life situation tonic. Brilliant. The best film i have seen in many years.
