Douglas, late 40s/Early 50s borderline suicidal, runs from his life and marriage to Andrew, late 30s/Early 40s, in Spokane to find happiness in Palm Springs. Douglas has a big spending problem, he likes nice cars, clothes and vacations, however, abruptly leaves his job. With no money, he retreats to his Palm Springs vacation home, Douglas doesn’t want to be an accountant again so, with no income, Douglas needs to find 3 roommates. Unexpectedly, the four men develop a family unit that works doing some unorthodox things to make ends meet.
Renaldo, mid 20s, came with the house when Douglas bought it and he is an illegal immigrant. Douglas doesn’t want to lose Renaldo because he runs the house and Douglas likes him and feels obligated to help him stay in the country.
Tony, early 40s, the process server that was to give Douglas divorce papers, is attracted to Douglas and the two briefly fall for each other, however, the two decide to keep things business like as they are now roommates – but sometimes the attraction is too strong to suppress.
