Synopsis "Dale and Roo-back home after their first year at college. Roo's summer job working for his adoptive father, Larry, presents an unexpected chance to meet his biological father, whom he has never known. Trapped between his desire to establish a 'meaningful relationship' with his natural father and his desire not to hurt Larry, Roo seeks the counsel of Dr. Bender, Dale's father, a psychiatrist and Larry's best friend. Unbeknownst to Roo that he is going with Larry's anxiety-wracked assistance, Roo enlists Dale to accompany him on his trek into the unexplored jungle of the connections between fathers and sons."
