Dolgoletna prijatelja Ray in Owen iz New Yorka večino svojega časa opravljata težaška dela in popivata. Ko Owena zapusti zaročenka Lynn, se prijatelja skupaj odpravita na festival v Kansasu. Tam Owen poskuša rešiti svojo zvezo, medtem ko ju Ray uspe spraviti v razkošen apartma v luksuznem hotelu. Na koncu njunega druženja se Owen odloči, da bo naredil korenite spremembe v njunem odnosu in v svojem življenju.
Two down on their luck childhood friends struggle to figure out their lives. Ray a drummer in a rock and roll band, and Owen an aspiring film maker spend most of their time working menial jobs and drinking. When Owen's fiancé Lynn breaks off their engagement he finds himself spiraling, and allows Ray to come along with him to a two bit film festival he has been invited to in Kansas. There Owen makes several attempts to patch up his relationship, while Ray scams them into a deluxe suite at the local Four Seasons hotel by posing as Wally Shawn's son (who happens to be receiving a lifetime achievement award) and generally causes a major ruckus. By the end, Owen decides to make some changes in their relationship and in his life.
