According to Long Wharf, "Huey Maxmillian Bonfigliano has a problem. He’s still stuck on his ex-wife, even though she tore out his heart three years ago. He feels that he can’t be a man again until he gets her back. Enlisting the help of his best friend Aldo, Huey tries to woo her back just one final time."
