The plot synopsis from TicTock Studios:  A small town Michigan guy (Sam Huntington) has his life begin to hilariously unravel as he is torn between staying with his current girlfriend (Sarah Drew), or bouncing back to his psycho ex (Haylie Duff).  Life would be so much easier if he could just follow his better judgment.  But he can’t.
