Bart, Nick, Monty and Jas spend long evenings together, drinking beer, eating sausages, playing poker and worrying whether they're really as happy in their bachelorhood as when they had real relationships with real women. Is freedom the opposite of marriage, or just another kind of captivity?
A story of old friends washed together by the shock waves of divorce. Together, they raise a glass to sexual emancipation over long evenings of sausages, beer and poker. Alone, they wonder where it's all going to end. Four men united in cheerful adversity, but what price can be put on male bonding when the next woman comes along - especially if she's the last person you can tell your best friends about? Bart - a man with an eye on his sperm count. Nick - a man who has never so much glanced at another woman...without wondering what she looks like in a rubber mask. Monty - mourning the loss of love. Jas - a veteran cheerleader for New Bachelorhood whose job it is to tell the others how much fun they're having. Is freedom the opposite of marriage or just another sort of captivity?
