It is the story of love-smitten Charles; his friend Sam, the unemployed Phi Beta Kappa college graduate; and Charles's mother, who spends much of her time in the bathtub feeling depressed. It is an uncannily accurate look at the nostalgia suffered by people yearning for deeper feelings in a culture that turns feelings into cliches.
