After four years of marriage to the intriguing but volatile Connie May, a waitress he got pregnant during his stint as a promising graduate student, Saul, now a high school English teacher and father of two, fantasizes about a return to the freedom of single life. At the same time, Malcolm, Saul’s wild best friend, whose multimillion dollar inheritance has funded several years of escapades with cocaine and strippers, is seeking a more domesticated future—possibly with the younger Melody, a savvy psychology major at the local university. Over the course of the two weeks between Saul's thirtieth birthday and a Christmas party that will be attended by Saul’s seemingly perfect ex, Annabelle, each friend devises a secret plan: Saul to offer Malcolm a career with purpose, and Malcolm to spring Saul from his complacency. In the meantime, Connie May has arrived at a plot to win back Saul’s affections and save their marriage, while Melody considers how to unveil a shocking secret of her own.
As each character learns of the others’ plans, it becomes increasingly uncertain that realizing their desires will bring the happiness they’re hoping for.
