Plot Summary

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. As they live in various parts of the country, they make a point to get together at least once a year for a week, this year's gathering at a rented beachfront house in Big Sur to celebrate Tim's birthday. Their get-togethers are to escape the responsibilities of their everyday lives, by reliving their former frat boy days of drugs, sex and partying. An incident that occurs half way through their scheduled time together leads to them examining their lives, and deciding individually and collectively if they will keep true to a pact they made twenty-five years ago. Their situation is complicated by their encounters with the local sheriff, Officer Boyde. Written by Huggo

Quotes Tim: You fuck lots of women. Have you ever truly loved one?
Richard: I love them all. Can't love them all if you only love one.
Tim: If that's true, that's interesting.
Richard: Yeah. You want to know what I think, Timothy? When they really get to see me, I don't like what they see.
Tim: You make sure of that.
