Daniel (Matt Fichtemaier) has a serious mother complex issue. As a result, his first relationship with a girl starts at the age of 17, and only because his girlfriend May (Airen Delamater) reminds him of his mother Amanda(Andrea Leigh). His father Frank (Michael Kennealy)suffers from impotency, therefore, he`s ashamed to continue his relationship with his wife. There is a point of life, a kind of predestination that exists between Amanda and Ray (Pascal Yen-Pfister) who is the father of May. As a complicated relationship develops during Daniel`s 18th birthday party, the celebration is like a ceremony, a funeral, a rebirth and a destiny.
