Charlie Coldbrick's not so triumphant return to work is marred by a new rig, a new boss, and a revamped lot on life. Join him in a time-honored American odyssey where he seeks peace, understanding and the fulfillment of his ultimate need. As with most journeys, Charlie's is saddled with surprise, regret, reflection, contempt and the settlement of old scores. As he embarks on his uncertain path, will he gain his new found coveted insight on humanity? Or will he fall into his old familiar traps? Two things are for certain: no voyage ever plays out as the explorer intended, and no vacation goes unpunished.
