    • Synopsis
    • Wayne Stobierski is the most fun-loving, hardest-living party animal in Rhinelander, Wisconsin (population 7,798). Just ask his favorite wingman, Tyler -- who’s seen it all, lived it all, loved it all. Only problem? Tyler is Wayne’s seven year old son. When Wayne’s drinking and careless behavior finally catch up with him, he loses shared custody of Tyler and his ex-wife informs him that she and her new husband will be moving Tyler out of state. Wayne is devastated. He decides to whisk Tyler away, accompanied by long-time pal Chuck, and embark on a ‘magical’ trip to ‘faraway’ Milwaukee to see their favorite baseball team: The Brewers!
      Out of his small-town comfort zone, all of Wayne’s plans go disastrously -- and hilariously -- wrong. And as fate would have it, the gang ends up at Wayne’s estranged sister Alicia’s house. This unplanned family reunion offers Wayne exactly what he’s been avoiding but what he most needs -- a chance at some much-needed perspective. But looking in the mirror takes courage and sobriety. Will Wayne have the strength to see himself for who he really is? Will he be strong enough to make the changes necessary to save himself for the sake of his son?
