Steve je ženskar in vremenar na lokalni televizijski postaji, ki je povsem zadovoljen s svojim življenjem. Nekega dne ga obišče njegov prijatelj iz otroštva Ben in ga obvesti, da je umrl njegov oče. Steve ga pospremi na pogreb v domači kraj, kjer Ben po dolgem času zopet sreča svojo sestro Terry in mačeho Angelo. Kmalu Ben izve, da mu je oče v oporoki zapustil svoje posestvo, nad čimer pa Terry ni najbolj navdušena, zato ga bo tožila. Steve se odloči, da bo Benu stal ob strani.
Ben Baker is a man-child who lives on his friend's couch getting high. His friend, Steve Dallas, is a moderately successful weather reporter who is living a superficial life. When Ben receives word that his father has died, Steve drives him home and they re-connect with Ben's successful and driven sister Terri and hippie step-mother Angela who is the same age as they are. The reading of the will drives Ben to come up with a new purpose in life, but those around him don't prove to be very supportive, and then they all re-examine their own life.
