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."
