Synopsis

Jack, a 25 year old Jersey guy is scared... of moving out of his parents house...of marrying his girlfriend of seven years... of spending his life working in the nursing home... of eighty year old Helen with whom he engages in a daily battle not to pull the fire alarm. On a rare trip into the "foreign" territory of New York City, Jack and his pal Merle talk their way into a hip downtown club. Wearing his best plaid shirt he fails to impress anyone, except a glamorous model, who happens to think taking care of old people is just about the nicest thing a person could do for a living. Totally smitten by her attention, Jack embraces her world. He feels guilty about cheating on his girlfriend, but he looks so good in his new Valentino suit! His buddies in the nursing home, impressed by Jack's ballet of deceit and self discovery, live vicariously through him. He's got to make a choice. But something's not right... as he discusses this new turn of events with his father, he realizes there is more to the old man than meets the eye. So which life does Jack choose?
