Dave Spritz is a Chicago weather man who is unhappy that his life hasn't turned out according to plan. Although he has talents of his own, he feels like a failure when measured against his successful father, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author. Dave's life is further complicated by an ex-wife who is always angry with him, a daughter who is struggling in school, a son who has just been released from rehab and "fans" who delight in taunting him on the streets. Although he tries various means of escape, everywhere he turns Dave is confronted with the realities of his life. Through finally learning to like himself and deal with the life he has instead of the one he dreams of, Dave comes to accept that being an adult isn't the worst fate in the world.
