Ralph is a has-been journalist who's forced to take a job teaching night school. But it might just be that he has more to learn than his students. Ralph used to have a wonderful life as a successful young editor living in his dream apartment with his amazing wife, Laila. Key phrase: used to. Those days are over now, as Ralph must all too bitterly admit.
His 50th birthday finds him jobless, in debt, divorced and subletting an apartment from his former intern and his intern's grandma. While his ex-wife and her new, ambitious partner are living a life of luxury, the unemployment office is forcing Ralph to take a job teaching night school.
