A trio of middle-aged Long Island family men who, following the sudden death of their best friend, channel their grief into an epic, multiday bender that takes them from Manhattan to London in a desperate, debauched quest to feel alive. By turns painfully funny and woundingly perceptive, this self-described 'comedy about life, death, and freedom' stands as perhaps the most fearless, harrowingly honest deconstruction of American manhood ever committed to film.
