STEVE and REY are about to get their big “Hollywood” break. Best friends for 10 years, but now they just can’t stand each other as an alcohol-fueled sexual fantasy of wife-swapping lands them into the arms of the other’s wife – it also threatens their only chance to be real Hollywood screenwriters.

Synopsis

REY CANO, a neurotic, self-defined “anxietist,” pill-popping, ex-Nuyorican, and STEVE BATTLE, a “jump-in-head-first,” “see-what-happens-later,” Miamian, are two middle-aged screenwriters who haven’t been able to get any traction in Hollywood.


But dreamers they are, so they keep at it. They spend endless hours in front of their computers watching soft porn and pitching one off-the-wall idea after another to each other. All the while they “bitch” about their fleeting manhood and fantasize; about women - about each other’s wife with other women - about each other’s wife with each other - and of course, the both of them with both of the wives.


The couples became great friends over the years. They've spent every possible weekend and family vacation together, so the fantasizing has become nothing more than mental masturbation.

So what started the unraveling was a vacation turned “sexual-fantasy-train-wreck.” Willing to leave the “experience” behind them, STEVE and the WIVES were resigned to call it a “Whatever Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas” moment, but REY couldn’t. REY’s Latin macho roots triggers a series of events that leads everyone to divorce. STEVE and REY end up with each other’s wife… and each other’s children… and each other’s home…. and all that comes with it. Ironically, the only “marriage” that survives is between STEVE and REY, as they’re forced to put their personal feelings aside, when a network decides to offer them their first “Big Break.”
