Description

Life is not going according to plan for Scott (Ben Schwartz, Parks and Recreation). He’s struck out as a stand-up comedian in LA and is living in his childhood bedroom in Long Island. Filled with self-doubt and the dread of needing to get a soul-crushing “real” job, he finds an unexpected connection with Marty (Billy Crystal), a local dermatologist and charming bar-fly. As their unlikely friendship deepens, Scott discovers that despite a larger-than-life personality, Marty has his own disappointments. A funny and emotionally resonant story about finding the strength to start anew.
