Peter Latang left working class Warwick, Rhode Island to reinvent himself as a slick Wall Street mover and shaker. Fifteen years later, when he’s forced to return home to bury his grandmother, he loses his wallet on the trip. Stranded, the only person he can think of to help him out is his next door neighbour and former childhood friend Donald Treebeck. Donald hasn’t changed a bit, and what starts as a simple favour turns into a long van ride into their past.

A fine addition to the comedy of discomfort genre with a star turn by writer-director-star Kris Avedisian
