Having failed to fulfil his dream of becoming a successful stand-up comedian in LA, 34-year-old Scott reluctantly moves back in with his parents and sister in suburban Long Island. Struggling to cope with the prospect of finding a real job and seeing that his ex-girlfriend has got married during his absence, he finds solace in his new friendship with the town’s eccentric but good-hearted dermatologist Marty (Billy Crystal, charming as ever). Bruised by life himself, Marty teaches Scott the art of moving on and starting anew in this bittersweet, heartfelt drama.
