Alex is in the middle of a messy breakup. While he works through the kinks in his life, Alex moves in with his old college friend and self-professed bachelor, Taj.

After some deep soul-searching, Alex realizes there is something missing in his life: meaning and purpose. He attempts to fill his emotional void with religion and begins a quest for faith.

Meantime, Taj is searching for the right woman. Actually, he's searching for any woman who will tolerate his uncensored, inappropriate comments about life. With Taj in tow, Alex embarks on a spiritual journey that spans the religious gamut while his predatory roommate uses Alex's new social circles in hopes of having a few casual encounters.
