synopsis
Nelson has no phone, no job, no future - and no Hailey. Broken and desperate, he shows up at his friend Jamie's door looking for help to get her back. Knowing that Nelson's chances are zero, and working towards an important promotion at work, Jamie must fend off his friend's neediness and delusions, to prepare his presentation. But when Nelson stumbles onto more devastating news, Jamie decides to try lifting his spirits. With his spirits not quite lifted, and Jamie not awake to intervene, Nelson pulls his most ridiculous and embarrassing stunt yet. And it may destroy both his and Jamie's future - unless he can figure out to take the tougher but better road.
