Joseph March is not a happy man. He's stuck in a dead end job. His boyfriend has left him for a younger man. There's a naked stranger in his bed. And, he's about to turn forty.
When his friends want to whisk him away for a surprise birthday getaway, what's a nice, gay guy supposed to do? Go along for the ride!!
Hoping for a little relaxation, his friends have made reservations at a spa they discovered in an internet chat room. But, this is no ordinary spa. It's a health clubm an educational seminar, a sex club, a nudist colony, a wildermess retreat and a penal institution all rolled into one!
Forced to say, Joe has ample time to re-examine his life. With the aid of his friends and an odd assortment of spa guests, Joe eventually decides that it's time to "Rejoin the human race." But, that's easier said than done.
Danger, drugs, hilarious charcters, disaster and true love are all just a road trip away!
