An erstwhile late-night comedy writer Max Brandel who blows up his successful career — and marriage — to become a somewhat less successful stand-up comic. Moving in with his father Stan, a gifted but eccentric chef turned doorman, and at loggerheads with his ex-wife and her new partner over how to best provide accommodations for their 9-year-old autistic son, Ezra, and give him the happy life he deserves. Brandel decides the solution is to kidnap Ezra and take him on a trek across the country. The result is honest, hilarious, and heart-warming.
