Synopsis

Nathan Fisher is a particular breed of Brooklyn writer, full of aimless ambition. He's brought down to earth by the desertion of his long-time girlfriend, a paralegal/novelist who believes she's on the verge of a big success and sees him as a liability. On the same day she breaks up with him, Nathan receives the news that his father has suffered a stroke. Nathan heads to the condo development in Florida where his parents are living a contentious co-existence. His dad is angry, his mom is dotty, Nathan is lost, and his older brother Jack is in the throes of his own marital mess. Nathan learns to see beyond the dysfunction, however, and realizes that his parents have something real between them - something he'd be lucky to have himself.
