Defying the haze of midlife, two friends seize an unlikely opportunity to reinvent their lives, quitting their jobs to restore a bowling alley and serve the “world’s greatest pizza.”
Divorced bartender Bobby Hoffman (James LeGros), living alone in the Airstream trailer inherited from his late mother, has drifted into a sleepy eddy. Life passing him by and struggling to complete his graphic-novel opus, Bobby comes to believe his life is doomed – just a meaningless simulation written by some alien civilization. On Bobby’s birthday, when his old high school buddy Carlos (Jesse Borrego) tries to shake him awake with a bold new business venture, shadows rear up from the past and threaten to crush him.
