Twenty-six-year old Andrew Largeman (writer-director Braff) has been living in LA and trying to make it as an actor. He has only gotten rare TV roles and works as a waiter in a Vietnamese restaurant. When his mother dies suddenly, Andrew flies back home to Trenton, New Jersey for the funeral. He's been on a variety of medications -- prescribed by his psychiatrist Dad (Holm) -- since the age of 9, and decides to go off them as an experiment during this trip. He has to face his Dad, parties with high school buddies, and meets a strange and lovely girl named "Sam" (Portman) who may change his life now that he's ready.
