This is a simple story of just how far a serious man will go for love. By his own admission, Stefan is alone but not lonely. But this changes when Hayley, weary from a high-pressure job with a self-absorbed boss/boyfriend, returns to her hometown to visit her aging grandmother. When Stefan overhears Hayley tell her grandmother that all she wants is a guy who makes her laugh, Stefan sets out to become funny and win her heart. Unfortunately, Stefan is not that funny, but his attempt leads to important transformations for both of them.

Tony Hale (Buster on Arrested Development ) portrays the affable, 40-ish Stefan with insight and charm, both as the clueless wannabe suitor to Hayley, and the compassionate caretaker for her grandmother.  This sweet, humble film is both humorous and smart, and touches on the importance of family, friendship and truth.
