A former high school football star and one time college athlete, Jon has landed back in the place of his youth Ė Fairhaven Ė a small fishing village on the Massachusetts coast. Now in his mid thirties, and with the promise of younger days seemingly washed ashore, Jonís 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, ďThereís got to be something more than this.Ē

Jon recounts his epiphany to Sam, old friend and schoolmate who married early, fathered early, divorced early and never left town. Sam made his own peace with small town life years ago, and is happy enough just to provide a stable home for his loving daughter, Cara, while secretly still pining for his beautiful ex-wife Kate.

Together, Jon and Sam anticipate the return of Dave, the third member of their once-indomitable trio. Having left town seven years ago and never looked back, Dave is finally returning to Fairhaven on the occasion of his estranged fatherís death. As tonic to Jonís soulful self-inquiry and Samís stoic loneliness, 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.

I haven't seen the film yet, but the synopsis reveals a story that I believe many of us share...have in common ----> is that all there is? Well, that's not all there is and "it's" all in how we [choose to] interpret and then follow through - or not. It's all in seeing matters negatively, positively, diplomatically, in-between (gray) and/or applying a more individualized view, which may or may not be accepted by society..but who cares - because so-called "societal norms" are NOT normal..seriously. Seems to me like a feel-good, inspirational film. I'd like to see it.
