35 year old Morris Bliss is clamped firmly in the jaws of New York City inertia. He wants to travel, but has no money; he needs a job, but has no prospects; and he still shares an apartment with his widowed father
, who treats Morris with a mix of disdain and exasperation. When he finds himself juggling a bizarre relationship with the sexually precocious 18 year old daughter
of a former classmate and the advances of his very forward neighbor
, Morris begins to realize that even though his life is unraveling, it’s also opening up in ways that are long overdue.
