Danny is a junior at Yale University, but unlike his other friends who are from wealthy families, Danny comes from a new jersey working class family. He has a crush on Polly, a pretty classmate who is having an affair with a professor, and he has been getting frantic calls from his ex-girlfriend, Cindy, back home. With spring break coming up, Danny is looking forward to a chance to relax. But when he arrives at home, Danny's father has to undergo a minor surgery, and Danny must take care of his father's business: the lunch truck he calls the "roach coach". Danny soon learns that his father's "territory" is about to be taken over by a new business: "the lunch monsters" who are rumored to have mafia connections. To top it all of Cindy finally gets in touch with Danny and tells him that she's pregnant. With all these events going on at once, Danny faces difficult decisions about where his loyalties lie, how to save his father's business, and whether he is ready to become a father himself.
