Rebelling against his dreary life in a small desert town in Arizona, TV salesman Nick (Roth) abandons his girlfriend, Beth (Fonda), and strikes out onto the highway in search of ...something else. Encouraged by her best friend Carol (Cates) - who happens to be Nick's ex-flame - Beth reluctantly accepts the romantic attentions of a local housepainter (Stoltz). But when Nick's impulsive road trip leads him back home again, it sets the stage for a wildly comic chain reaction among four people whose lives have suddenly become hopelessly, hilariously intertwined.
Four twenty-something American adults try to sort out their feelings about life and love in this offbeat generational comedy.
