Ollie Trinke (Ben Affleck) is at the top of his game. A smooth Manhattan music publicist, Ollie has just married the love of his life (Jennifer Lopez) and has a child on the way. It’s a perfect life that is tragically upended when he suddenly finds himself a single father unqualified for his new role.
Before long Ollie’s big city lifestyle clashes head on with fatherhood. After losing his job, he’s forced to move back in with his father (George Carlin) in the New Jersey suburb where he was raised. With the help of a beautiful young friend (Liv Tyler) who opens him up to love again, and the daughter who gives him the courage to keep going, he begins to realize that sometimes, you have to forget about what you thought you were and just accept who you are.
