    • Synopsis
    • At 23, Brad is starting to come into his own as an independent film-maker and is in a relationship that he thinks could have a real future. Optimistic and focused, he's gaining confidence and finding his footing in the world. At 26, Aaron is an impulsive bartender who feels like he's constantly alive to the moment. A loyal friend with boundless enthusiasm, Aaron simply wants everyone he meets to join him in his on-going celebration. When Aaron's girlfriend Jami brings him to Brad's apartment (where Heather is currently staying) for a double date, Aaron accidentally infuriates Jami, and she storms out of the apartment before Heather even gets there. As Aaron's ride and the woman who's letting him stay at her place, Jami leaves Aaron stranded but also not to concerned about that fact. He and Brad start drinking beer and getting to know each other, and Aaron doesn't hesitate to ask this guy whom he just met if he can crash at his place for the night. A night turns into a year and a half, at which point Aaron officially moves in. Brad and Heather broke up months before this event, and ever since Aaron has been doggedly trying to convince Brad, who's always on the lookout for his next serious relationship, to enjoy his freedom and explore his options more. Brad, wanting to get married and have kids one day (desires that Aaron respects but can't relate to), continues to steer his course, though. Regardless of Aaron's plans (or lack thereof), Brad encourages him to give the women who he's having casual flings with more of a chance. Although their approaches and intentions differ when it comes to their love lives, the guys prove to be effective wing-men for each other and enjoy pretty much every second of their day-to-day night lives. Tired of waiting tables and frustrated with the state of his film-making career, though, Brad starts to feel like he needs to be going out less and applying himself more. Aaron, who constantly fails to hold down a bar-tending job for more than six months, thinks that Brad, who is prone to anxiety and self-judgment, is simply being too hard on himself and that he needs to just "live it up, make it last". Seeing the wisdom in each other's viewpoints, the guys make an on-going attempt to strike a balance in their lives in order to fulfill their potential and have no regrets along the way. As the years go on, though, Aaron and Brad's frustration with and concern for each other begin to grow as they struggle to break out of the patterns that they're sick of feeling stuck in. Their efforts to better themselves and grow up test their friendship more and more over time, but their enduring bond also helps them handle the unexpected challenges and tough choices that they're increasingly faced with.
