Ron wants his family and friends to experience the summer vacation of his childhood. But his friends are too busy seeking a threesome, his kids don’t give a s**t, the Australians next door want to see the “real” America, and his wife won’t stop falling asleep. Will he have a Summer of His Life? Will he connect with his family? Will he ever get cotton candy?

The world premiere of a hilarious and moving new comedy about sad people on vacation.
