ANDREW'S mom has just died of horrible cancer. He's a mess. His trusted friends take him on a week's escape to the Southern California desert in an effort to shake him out of his grief. Then he drops a bomb on them. Andrew truly believes the only way to combat the huge hole in his heart is with an overwhelming act of kindness, intimacy, and yeah-- 'making love with the women I care about most.' His friends are baffled by the request and frankly, pissed. And what about his longtime girlfriend HANNAH? She's always one to put others' needs above her own, but Andrew's new idea of a 'healing process' has left her right on the edge of sanity. There are other complicating factors as well. Andrew's beer-swigging best friend DAVE popped the question to his girlfriend ZOE before their arrival in the desert. No one else knows and Zoe has yet to give him an answer. Also, Zoe happens to be the newest and, well, hottest member of the group and the whole orgy thing makes her just want to leave. Then there's OWEN and EMILY, perfect on the outside, shitshow on the inside. The incredulity and sweetness that first drew Owen to Emily now bores him, and as the tension in the house mounts, his eye wanders to Emily's best friend, Hannah. Also there's the fact that Emily is kind of considering Andrew's request, which makes Owen's head explode. The thing about being best friends is that you stick by your people--and when reasoning doesn't work, you hire your best friend some dirty desert prostitutes. When that doesn't work and your friend runs off into the desert night--well, then you're pretty much screwed. That's when you actually have to answer the question--how far would you go for a friend? The backdrop to this adventure is the ever-present desert--a harsh, vast environment, filled with things you don't want to sit on, and people you don't want to sit with. There's RICH, the crazy man who rents them the house; OLD MAN CARL, who's wandering the desert looking for his dog; LORIE, a drunk at a bar with whom Andrew finds some kinship; and GROUSLY, a mangy old dog who becomes Andrew's best friend and later, the catalyst for his breakdown. No one can hide in the desert. Whatever trouble you bring with you will be exposed to the sun. Andrew wears his pain on his sleeve; everyone else thinks they can hide theirs under their clothes. But the desert won't have it, and neither will Andrew.
