After finding a vintage Lazy Boy recliner online just like the one that used to grace his childhood living room, Josh decides to purchase the purple relic and deliver it to his father as a surprise birthday gift. Josh's simple plan is suddenly complicated when his emotionally demanding girlfriend, Emily, and his granola-munching brother, Rhett join him on the trip. During the road trip and mission, Josh learns a thing or two about himself and his relationships in the process.
