A former high school football star and one time college athlete, Jon has returned to his hometown – Fairhaven – a small fishing village on the Massachusetts coast.  Now in his mid thirties, Jon’s vague feelings of dissatisfaction are crystallized by a television interview with his football hero Tom Brady, who proclaims that, even after three super bowl wins, “There’s got to be something more than this.”
 
Jon recounts his epiphany to Sam, old friend and schoolmate who married early, fathered early, divorced early and never left town. Together, they anticipate the return of Dave, the third member of their once-indomitable trio, who is finally returning to Fairhaven on the occasion of his estranged father’s death.  Dave is determined to inject some heavy-duty, Vegas-style fun into the funeral weekend. But when old dreams and simmering resentments come to the beer & tequila-soaked surface of their reunion, not even Dave can fend off a healthy dose of reality.
