Silicon Valley entrepreneur Rich has a great house, an amazing wife, and a 7-month-old daughter named Brooke. Rich's childhood friend Benji comes to visit for a "boys weekend" just as Rich unexpectedly gets invited to meet with some high-profile investors. Without childcare plans, Rich reluctantly leaves Brooke under the care of Benji, a brilliant but mentally unstable out-of-work actor, who takes Brooke on a magical, albeit dangerous journey. As Benji starts to ravish the wine cellar and more, his babysitting skills start to devolve. In a moment of insane frustration, a truly terrifying act happens that might actually be the crazy breakthrough moment Rich needs in his life. The semi-autobiographical film stars BJ Averell (Benji) and Tyler MacNiven (Rich) who won Season 9 of the Amazing Race and takes place 12 years later as their lives have diverged. -JM
