Thirty-one-year-old Marc Nussbaum has visions of enjoying
the finer things in life after building a successful landscaping
business with clientele from the affluent suburbs of Chicago—
no dependents, no commitments outside of work, no worries.
And he's found the perfect woman to enjoy it with him. But
when his dysfunctional family members come to him when they’
re in trouble, he quickly loses sight of his own dreams and runs
to their aid.
Falling victim to their helplessness, Marc devotes most of his
time and life to rescuing his father, sister, and nephews from
one catastrophe after another, losing his girlfriend in the
process. Then, after painful soul-searching and late-night talks
with the fetching tenant from downstairs, he must decide
whether to continue saving them from their ill-fated lives, or
save himself from entering into a life of self-sacrifice and
Marc eventually realizes his purpose in life and how to achieve
self-fulfillment—but the purpose in life that he discovers for
himself isn't at all what he had previously envisioned.
