Just out of college, Tom Thompson can't find a job, a girlfriend or a way out of his mother's house in Brooklyn. Still surrounded by loyal friends from his youth, Tom's heart reels when he is reunited with his high school crush Julie DeMarco. Just when his luck seems to be changing, Tom receives a mysterious phone call from a woman asking him to be a pallbearer at the funeral of an old classmate. Struck with a sense of duty, Tom agrees despite one dilemma: he can't remember who the classmate is. For Tom, it's just the beginning of a series of errors and mistaken identities that will send his friendships, love life and outlook on the world spinning back into uncertainty.
