"Had I looked,
I might have seen the first punch coming.
But I never had a clue about the knockout."

Attorney Sam Weisman is having a bad day. His wife wants a divorce, and his law practice is threatened by a hostile takeover. What's a guy to do? 'Swanee, how I love ya...' – that's his dad on the phone, asking for free legal services for a friend. The neighbor's dog won't stop barking ... so Sam comes up with a crazy plan to calm his nerves with sedatives prescribed by Sid the Psych, who is now entrepreneuring with psychobabble T-shirts.

Pulled one way by two hilarious con artists who plan to steal his dream, and another by his family and the real estate professional who's worked her way into his heart, Sam uncovers the wisdom in his father's madness and struggles to hold onto his sanity, his self-esteem, and the woman he loves. Grasping the end of his rope in one hand and the end of his rainbow in the other, he teeters between the abyss ... and the pot of gold!
