Bird enthusiast and high school teacher Ron Spencer has seen his life fall down all around him. After being thrown out by his wife and with his daughter drifting away, Ron sees his dream job as Head of Ornithology at the National Park awarded to the younger, hipper Floyd Hawkins. Devastated, Ron unexpectedly bumps into Ben, a pot smoking slacker, and former student. The two quickly forge an unlikely friendship, bonding over their mutual hatred of Floyd. They set out on a haphazard campaign to take Floyd down and restore Ron’s bird watching legacy.
