"TROUSERS" takes a funny and quirky look at male friendship as it examines the messy lives of Dermot and Mick, two old college chums who've been out of contact for the last 17 years. Now pushing 40, the duo is forcibly reunited when Mick suddenly appears on Dermot's doorstep and confesses that he's lost his girlfriend, his apartment and his job and needs a place to sort things out. As the two take note of the various changes that have taken place since they last saw each other (Mick's expanding waistline, Dermot's odd interest in yoga and herbal tea) Dermot discovers a relic of their misspent youth: Mick's favorite pair of pants from 1989, purchased in New York City when the duo visited as college students. As the weeks go by, the ambitious Dermot tries to get the bone-idle Mick off the couch and back into the world. But he keeps flashing back to their New York trip in the 80s and the questionable choices, unfulfilled hopes and special pair of trousers that have somehow led both of them to this point in their lives.
