Synopsis

Meet Bill--a doormat if ever there was one. A man reduced to a mere accessory to his family by working a dead end job at his father-in-law's bank and arguing about his overindulgent love for chocolate with his wife Jess who is loathe to explain her "friendship" with the local news anchorman. But Bill's fate begins to change when he becomes a mentor to a self-assured boy who engineers Bill's recovery with the help of a cute lingerie sales girl named Lucy. Together, the trio confronts Bill's hapless life with humor and energy while forcing him to capture his dream of being financially independent and self-confident.
