Bob Finhead is an insurance agent in the small town of Neuterberg, Iowa. On a Friday night just before Christmas, his clients stop by his office for their yearly holiday bash. Bob dreams of a bigger life and wants to escape the narrow-minded thinking that has befallen his friends and clients; the sheriff, the twin farmer sisters, the stoner, the town floozy, the pastor's wife, the mayor, his wife, and the outsider. Will Bob be able to end his affair with the mayor's wife? Will he be able to fulfill his dream of becoming a professional inventor? Will any of this matter once the party starts, the bickering and fighting begins and the drinks hit the floor?
