What follows is an all-night road trip which takes the trio from a run-in with the paparazzo to Matt's ex-wife's house and finally to his sons' bedroom where Matt is forced to confront the mess he's made of his life.

The transformative evening even manages to bring Beverly and Matt closer together. The question is: for how long?
