    • Synopsis
    • Our hero, PETER ROSE is bored at home and at work, wondering where all the years have gone. Once upon a time he might have been handsome, but now his charm has receded alongside his hairline and his sex life. In short, PETER is a
      regular guy and is having a midlife crisis. He is everyman, but the only problem is that stepping through the looking glass to fulfill his desires ends up being a little more than whathe bargained for.
      After being caught in a compromising moment with the babysitter, he ends up spiraling out of control in a series of sexual miscapades. But as Peter tries to hopelessly extricate himself from each ridiculous situation, he somehow manages to dig himself deeper in. What was once a family man who pined after
      his college days succumbs to primal forces best kept at bay.
      But throughout the hilarious ordeal that brings to life every fantasy he ever wished for each step surprisingly returns him back to the cherished life he left behind.
