Meet Josh, a paragon for the modern postcollegiate. He has a job with no upward path and a dysfunctional relationship with his ex. Through his work with teenagers, he begins to find definition through the haze, gradually discovering purpose and a measure of self-respect.
After two shiftless friends take up residence in his apartment, using his couch as a podium to rail against the world, he takes stock of who he is versus who he wants to be, and when his troubled ex finds herself in real danger, Josh can’t resist the allure of playing the savior, but now he may have a little wisdom on his side.
