Josh has failed at being a NYC indie rocker. Josh has failed at being a booking agent. Josh's life is pretty much in the toilet. When he tries to figure out where it all went wrong he comes up with an idea that would be a small, yet life changing victory. He decides to purchase a 1985 Lazy Boy on eBay, just like the one from his childhood living room, and deliver it cross-country to his father as a surprise birthday gift. Things immediately get complicated when his girlfriend Emily wants to come. Especially when she wants to have the "where we stand" in their relationship conversation... When his pseudo-granola brother, Rhett, begs to join them on their adventure it quickly becomes three very different people and a giant purple puffy chair in a too-small van... and one of them has to go before the trip's end.
