A bag full of drugs; an ex-trophy wife with a court order; a groupie searching for a judge; and an ex-CEO with nothing to call his own except the head of a deer. In a single summer night in Dallas, Texas, these things all come crashing together in a comedy punk fable about letting go and learning how to say "F-*&% it all!"
Max Hagan (TOM WILKINSON) has spent a lifetime pursuing success, and has achieved it in spades. But when we first meet him, this absentee father extraordinaire is lying in bed in his once-swanky Dallas home, quietly contemplating how he managed to sell his multimillion dollar company, lose his HTW (Dallas-speak for “Hot Trophy Wife”), and allow his drug-addled son Millian to move back in. Max’s daughter Beth (SELMA BLAIR) owns a small record label and has just gotten a big offer to move to New York. But she is so obsessed with being normal that she can’t see the cracks opening up in her own life. Only Max’s disabled sister Lolly (GERI JEWELL) seems to see what’s happening, but no one is listening. When Beth asks her father to finally meet her boyfriend, Raff (NICK STAHL) – a kinda punk musician with latent ambitions towards software design – she sets into motion a night for Max that sends his life on an enchanting turn for the worse.
