This story is a true to life account of a middle age man 'Thomas Fester' on the cusp of a midlife crisis, who quits his job, stops communicating with his immediate family and becomes embroiled in adulterous affairs as he seeks to come to grip with an adulterous wife and wayward kids.
When a sudden malaise overcomes husband and father Thomas Fester, he suddenly stops relating to his beautiful wife Lida, and his children Patricia and Dre. Yet he is not inhibited enough to prevent himself from falling into intimate relationships with a friendly college student and also his attractive tennis partner. The death of his parents brings his family together at this turbulent time of Fester family life. Will older brother Jonah, an accomplished psychologist, get to the bottom of his 'confusion' in time to save his marriage?
