A too-close look at Ben Addison. An alcoholic retail manager with nothing but regrets.
Ben’s parents just died in a horrific car accident. He never got to impress them with anything. A lifetime of safe decisions have led to a life of routine and disappointment. He finishes each night at the bottom of a whiskey glass and tries to forget that his biggest accomplishment is his Clayton’s manager name tag.
The last straw comes when he realizes that on top of everything else, he’s also a pervert. Leveraging his small-time retail management role to surround himself with beautiful young women and spend his days ogling. The night finally comes when the whiskey isn’t enough.
But Ben can’t even get his suicide right–a homeless stranger manages to break into his home and save his life. At first furious and full of hatred toward the man, Ben soon forms a bond based on mutual misery. The bond carries the two men across three states on a nostalgia-fueled journey to find something to hang onto. Revealing conversations in seedy motel rooms give Ben a reason to hang on, at least temporarily.
But when Ben finally reaches his destination, he has to decide if he’s willing to destroy somebody else’s life to reclaim his own.
