Synopsis

Presented with an ultimatum by the Mrs. (she wants another child; Tom thinks one's enough, especially since their brood is in rehab: "What are you going for, group discount?"), Tom finds himself out in the world, alone. Tom's life goes in a tailspin as he juggles alimony and rehab payments while his job goes south, courtesy of his corrupt partner Mike. Yet he manages to find a measure of humor and redemption as he realizes that if it's not happening at home, it's not happening anywhere: "You don't know what you have until it's all you've got." Halfway Decent is a story about one man's journey to find the key to his front door.
