Synopsis
Larry, Phil and Bob are three midwestern businessman at crucial stages of their lives. Larry is a smooth-talking slick operator whose brutal honesty comes as no surprise to his old pal Phil but shocks and offends young Bob. Recently married, deeply religious and a bit nervous about his first convention, Bob's wholesome righteousness irks Larry to no end. Trying to keep the peace is Phil, who's been in the business the longest. Recently divorced and emotionally and physically exhausted, Phil has suddenly found himself forced to reassess his life and purpose. As the evening progresses with the three men waiting for an important potential client to stop by -- "the big kahuna" -- they find themselves opening up in unexpected ways. As the night turns to day, each man has been transformed in ways that they -- and the audience -- would never expect.
