Synopsis

During the course of four tumultuous days, four friends wrestle with lust, passion, and just what is the meaning of that enigmatic lyric from Steve Miller's classic song "The Joker." Mark, Runyon, Phil, and Josh share their deepest, most puzzling feelings about love, life and friendships--in smoke filled bars, over drinks at a strip club, and at the occasional backyard bonfire. For the most part, they remain unsure whether to embrace cupid or impale him with his own arrow! What is said, and the adverse 'what is meant' (both by men and women) gets a healthy examination in this story of love, confusion and indecipherable rock 'n' roll lyrics.
