    • Synopsis
    • Based on true events that occurred on Thanksgiving 2008 and set in suburban Detroit, this is a film about Kevin, a 30 something, happy go lucky guy who shows up to his girlfriend Michelle's house and, rather than the usual warm embrace, catches her cheating on him through her living room window. Crushed and in a fit of rage, Kevin rushes home and after loading every last heirloom reminding him of Michelle into a garbage can, he lights it on fire only to wind up getting arrested for arson.
      Meanwhile, at the gym, Kevin's overly opinionated best friend Brad daydreams of impaling another member for not re-racking his weights. Just as Brad's eye falls lazy in his retributive fantasy, the ringing of his cellphone awakens him only to find that it's Kevin calling from the jail. Brad arrives to bail Kevin out and after an evening of consoling his best friend, Brad drops Kevin off at home with the promise of a new day ahead.
      Through a sleepless night, the dawn indeed brings a new day for Kevin but when he reluctantly accepts an invitation to Brad's home to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with an eccentric group of family and friends, the alcohol beings to flow and a series of outlandish events are set into motion that result in a hilarious and unlikely salvation for both Kevin and Brad.
