Four high school friends are reunited during the summer but it forces them to face the disillusionment that defines them. When tragedy hits the friends at a party one night, one of them has a realization. They then bring back the pact they once had, creating a new world order.
And then you write another one. Then you'll get the heat behind you! And that will push you through...to write...the novel. To type the end. And then...fucking what?
I don't understand. I mean, is there something wrong with that? You live in some sort of disillusionment. Because it's easier than being honest. What are you hiding from, old man?
You published the book I love.
I was like that. I was so fucking excited about this. And about that. But you just...you think it's going to be so fucking rosy! So fucking rosy!
Well, Jonah is not like that. He doesn't think anything is going to be some certain way. He just loves to write.
You don't have to speak for me.
You live in some sort of disillusionment! Because it's easier than being honest. What are you hiding from, old man? You think that he's going to be like you when he's older. Because it makes you feel better about yourself.

Richard, Timothy, Jonathan, and Ron are old high school and college buddies, who feel like they've taken the wrong turn in life. None of them are happy with their place, so every year, the group sets up a sort of reunion, where they get together and forget the troubles of their respective worlds. Jonathan, being a doctor, supplies a cavalcade of uppers, downers, and various other drugs for a whole weekend of partying, scored by the soundtrack of their youth, which seems so far in the rear-view mirror. The friends get stupid, reminisce, skinny dip, and just try to have fun, in attempt to shut out their unhappiness, which actually plagues them. Eventually, it becomes too much, and what was intended to be a fun, relieving retreat turns into a dark period of self and group confrontation, when a pact the friends made 25 years ago is resurfaced, and reconsidered.
