Miles is a failed writer living a meager existence in San Diego as an English teacher. With his marriage on the rocks, his career seemingly fading and the fate of a book hinging on a publisher’s decision, Miles is depressed with himself and what he hasn’t achieved. Jack is a television actor whom some recognize but not many do, as if he were a minor actor who got a taste of success. With his best friend Miles, the two embark on a road trip through California’s wine country. Miles wants to give his friend a nice sendoff before married life, while Jack simply wants to have a fling beforehand. As they’re both nearing middle age with not much to show for it, the two will explore the vineyards while ultimately searching for their identities.

“A brilliant exploration of life, longing and second chances.” – Jeanne Aufmuth, Palo Alto Weekly
