Peter Pearce’s parents divorced after 65 years, his wife left him after 35, and his two sons, Mickey and Nick, are off leading their own lives. When Peter flies to Tulum, crashing Nick’s bachelor party hosted by Mickey, he realizes he’s not the only Pearce man in crisis.


Griffin Dunne stars as Peter Pearce, a man floundering after his father (Richard Benjamin) leaves his mother after 65 years of marriage and his own wife (Rosanna Arquette) leaves him after thirty-five. With his son Nick (James Norton)'s wedding on the horizon, Peter plans a getaway to Tulum, claiming to have had no idea that his sons and their friends would be there that very weekend for Nick’s bachelor party. The Pearce boys grapple with their own heartaches and question the role of family as their father makes an unexpected appearance in the Yucatán.
