Not really much of a self-starter - unless you count bouts of philosophizing and repeated viewings of the movie "Signs" - Jeff rarely ventures far beyond his home...which happens to be in the basement of his mother's Baton Rouge house where he and his now estranged brother, Pat, grew up. Still concerned but completely out of ideas as to getting Jeff to move forward with his life, his mother Sharon has whittled her own dreams for her eldest son down to completing the simple tasks she hopes Jeff might accomplish before she gets home from her civil service job. Today, it's about wood glue - could he simply make it to the store to buy some of the stuff to repair a loose slat in a shutter door? Well, he can try. But for Jeff, life is anything but simple, as he sets out mindful of his goal and armed with his own special view of the world. He is convinced that if a person can just listen for signs in the universe, a path will be made clear. Thanks to an earlier wrong-number call looking for someone named Kevin, Jeff believes that Kevin is key to finding his way...at least for today. The simple task he sets out to accomplish quickly becomes forgotten, as Jeff encounters a series of comedic and unexpected events that lead him to cross paths with his family in the strangest of locations and circumstances. Along the way, Jeff just may find the meaning of his life... and if he’s lucky, pick up the wood glue as well.
