Plot & Details

Officially an adult but locked into a perpetual phase of arrested development, an aimless twentysomething attempts to make sense of his go-nowhere life after being dumped by his girlfriend and forced to move back home with his parents. Art may still be far from mid-life, but no one can deny that he's having a crisis. When his attempts at establishing himself as a sensitive singer/songwriter fail, Art dips into his inheritance money in order to experiment with a variety of new-age therapies and hire an eccentric self-help guru. Gradually, Art begins to make sense of the dysfunctional relationship he shares with his frustrated parents, and understand the unique role he plays in his small but close-knit social circle.
