Nate Evans knows his life has hit rock bottom the day the Air Force dropped a bomb on his home. He's a washed-up Hollywood screenwriter obsessed with the past who convinces himself his rotten life is a dress rehearsal for the one he should have had. So he writes a script for himself and uses it to stage a series of hilarious events to recreate his high school days, hoping for a second chance to win the heart of the girl he let get away long ago.
Everything is groovy until Nate is faced with having to sabotage her engagement to a rat fink fiancé who is seriously in need of finking, or let her get away. Again.
