David has it all figured out. His plan, more a Steinbeckian dream, is to spend the summer working on an apple farm in Oregon with his best friend Jennifer. When she bails on him, David is left to get his hands dirty alone, watched over by the old far owner Hobbs, the first in a series of questionable mentors he encounters. There's Curly, the friendly forklift operator with a unique hobby, and Jon, the born-again rock hound who helps David in a time of need. The first ever film adaptation of David Sedaris' work is the story of a prideful young man and what's left of him after all he believes is chipped away at piece by piece.
