On his way to meeting his publisher, aspiring novelist Sam Wexler (Josh Radnor) meets Rasheen, a young boy separated from his family on the subway. When Rasheen refuses to be left alone with social services, Sam learns the boy has already been in six previous homes and impulsively agrees to let the boy stay with him for a couple days. Dropped into Sam's chaotic, bachelor lifestyle, Rasheen is introduced to Sam's circle of friends: Annie (Malin Akerman, The Proposal) who has a habit of dating the wrong men, but finds a promising new suitor (Tony Hale, Arrested Development), Mary-Catherine (Zoe Kazan, Revolutionary Road) and Charlie (Pablo Schreiber, The Wire) whose potential move to Los Angeles threatens their relationship, and Mississippi (Kate Mara, 127 Hours), an ambitious singer/waitress who tests Sam's fear of commitment. As Sam's friendship with Rasheen develops, he realizes that adulthood is not about waiting for the right answers, but simply stumbling ahead and figuring them out in the process.
