Your career as a writer is blossoming, your beautiful young fiancée is waiting to get married and rush off to Cancún by your side, so what is your natural reaction? Well, if you're a man, it's probably to get nervous and start calling up old girlfriends. And so begins a single man's odyssey through four hotel rooms as he flies across the country in search of the perfect woman (that he's already broken up with).
Cast: Mark Forlenza, Liz DeBetta, Joya Italiano, Krysten Kimmett, and Eileen Marlowe
