At 32, Zachary King seems to have it all - a beautiful fiancee, a well-paid job in import/export, a rent-free flat in Manhattan. As the wedding looms closer, though, Zach's charmed life begins to show a few cracks. First, that stubborn feeling that the careful friendship with his best friend's widow might just about to be taken one step too far. Then, the unwelcome appearance of Norm, his free-wheeling, Viagra-popping father, who is trying to mend his ways after having left the family in the lurch twenty years ago. And finally, an unpleasant reality-check after a visit to the doctor. All of a sudden, everything changes. Somewhere during the run-up to his wedding, Zach discovers that importing/exporting isn't all that it's cracked up to be and that a decision as momentous as marriage surely needs a lot more time...And can you really refuse your father in the face of such adversity? In just a few short days, Zach's life gets a radical make-over and when he comes out on the other side, he finds that it matters less what exactly life happens to throw at you and much more what you ultimately choose to make of it.
