Ollie Trinke is a smooth and successful Manhattan music publicist who seems to have it all. When his perfect life is suddenly tragically upended--leaving him as a single father unqualified for the role--he snaps. Before long Ollie's big city life is a memory. Out of a job and out of luck, he reluctantly moves in with his father back home to New Jersey where he was raised. It is the lowest point in his life. Just ask him. The years pass and with them Ollie's plans for his future. Stuck in an unexciting, deadend job, he sees no way out and no way back to the life he used to love. But he adores his young daughter Gertie, and she loves their life in the 'burbs. To her, Jersey is paradise. While renting Gertie's favorite movie for the zillionth time one day, Ollie meets Maya, who challenges his priorities and perspective. He begins to realize that sometimes you have to forget about who you thought you were, accept who you are and acknowledge what makes you happy.
