After his wife, Laura, leaves him, Smanga, a celebrated professor, spirals into an alcohol-, marijuana- and sex-induced tailspin that places his career and his home in jeopardy. His path of self-destruction is interrupted only when he runs across an old school friend, Jon – now a failed motivational speaker. Taking pity on Jon, Smanga invites him home, and a friendship quickly develops. Through their emotionally honest communication, Smanga begins healing.
With the house on the line, Jon sees an opportunity to boost Smanga’s income by selling the marijuana growing in the backyard. When Laura returns, these three misfits live together, only to have the ante upped by an unexpected pregnancy.
