On the cusp of inheriting his father’s estate, Swanson is a man with unlimited options, spending his days in aimless recreation with like-minded friends, in games of comic irreverence and mock sincerity. As Swanson grows restless with the safety a sheltered life offers him, he tests the limits of acceptable behavior. A work of rare maturity about a post-hipster generation.
