The past ain’t all it’s cracked up to be especially when one tries in vain to recapture the former glory and innocence of their cherished youth as two former high school friends reunite thirty years later in a painfully comedic and bittersweet rollercoaster of an evening. Mitch, a struggling actor and inveterate whiner bent on recapturing the “old magic” at all costs, waits in heightened anticipation in the “Arrivals” section of the airport until finally spotting his ex-school chum, Dunc, now an overweight boozer and womanizer, leading to an awkward embrace that starts the clock ticking on these long lost friends’ nocturnal fever dream into the heart of darkness of old wounds, unrealized dreams, and dashed hopes. The following morning’s sun announces a new dawn as an exhausted and disillusioned Mitch, having already abandoned his old friend to the night’s misadventures, manages to show up in the nick of time to his acting audition where, standing all alone and emotionally naked up onstage, suddenly comes face to face with the totality of his life’s choices.
