Description: Chuck and Buck were once "best friends," a relationship that means so much to children but fades once the innocence that formed it is gone. For Buck this innocence has never gone away. His interests are infantile; his pursuits are childish. He is twenty-seven years old but still lives with his mother. When she dies, reality crashes in on him. Stubbornly resistant to change and incredibly immature, he cannot cope. Chuck reappears in Buck's life when he shows up at the funeral. Buck fixates on him, so much so that he follows Chuck to Los Angeles, where he has established a successful life. A fast-rising executive in the music industry and engaged, he is living the American Dream. Buck's insistence on things being the way they were quickly erodes their relationship to the point where Chuck must confront and reckon with his past.
