"In America, we give our lives to our jobs. It's time to take them back."
Bobby Walker (Ben Affleck) is living the American dream: great job, beautiful family, shiny Porsche in the garage. However, his comfortable lifestyle suddenly changes when corporate downsizing leaves him and co-workers Phil Woodward (Chris Cooper) and Gene McClary (Tommy Lee Jones) jobless. Three of them are forced to re-define their lives as men, husbands, and fathers.
Bobby soon finds himself enduring enthusiastic life coaching, a job building houses for his brother-in-law (Kevin Costner), which does not exactly match his executive skills, and gradually the realization that there is more to life than chasing the bigger, better deal.
