Robert Argyll is a failing stand up comedian. To make matters worse, he drinks too much, can’t hold down a relationship and is going nowhere fast.

When he gets the news of his mother’s death, he reluctantly makes the journey home to be with his estranged family.

Battling the eclectic bunch of misfits, do-gooders and general nuisances with his usual sarcasm and wit, Robert is faced with a heartbreaking decision as he tries to keep what remains of his family together.
