The news sends Nate and his co-worker and best friend Sean into a spiral of misguided urgency to save their second home. Adding insult to injury, this fuels Nate's girlfriend, Lauren, to persistently nag him to grow up and leave everything behind to take a corporate job for her father. As the foreclosure looms like a ticking time bomb of failure, a disgruntled former employee and Nate's high school rival, Derek, swoops in and makes a bid on the store to buy it and fire everyone, turning it into an outlet for the local mega-chain Depot Warehouse.

In the ultimate underdog story, Nate and Sean man-up on a series ... Written by Jon-Michael Foshee
