Reduced to holding down the bottom in a lukewarm nostalgia band, the thrill is gone for old-school bass player Jude Barnes. What's more, his materially challenged wife, Rachel, wants more out of life than Jude's enough-to-get-by income has provided over the years. She conspires with their annoying eleven-year-old son, Miles, and her eccentric father-in-law to force Jude into a life of middle-class respectability.

A solution presents itself when caustic college buddy, Donny, fast-talks Jude into working the sell-side of the burgeoning tech-stock bubble. But just as it appears that Rachel has succeeded in transforming Jude into a responsible adult, a mysterious and obstinate diva named Nefertiti arrives on the scene, threatening to unravel Rachel's plans by tempting Jude into one last fateful dance with his elusive muse.
