Alan made all the responsible choices in life: a steady job, a pretty wife, a safe and happy existence. But after his marriage with Mary disintegrates, he is suddenly plunged back into a bachelor’s life at 32, forced to face the cost of the all things he gave up in his twenties. Meandering between newfound hobbies, his job, and meeting new women, Alan attempts to regain all the experiences he passed on while he was married. But nothing is what he hoped it would be. His friends have settled into their own lives, his hobbies aren't quite as romantic as he remembered, and navigating his relationships with women turns out to be more complicated than he thought. Failing in all these aspects of his new life, Alan is confronted with the reality of a life that has been wrecked, uprooted, and scattered. And as he tries to force these pieces together to make a cohesive, sensible life, he realizes just how impossible the task may be.
