Once upon a time the US economy hummed. Patrick hummed with it. Everything was easy for this anti-hero. Bay Area residential Mortgage-Brokerage to any and all with or without the means. Conquest of a multitude of willing, yet vapid ladies. Then “she” appears, something very cute and certainly not vapid But it’s hard. Gets a lot harder when Patrick’s business is the straw that breaks the camel’s back of ridiculous over-leverage in the economy…and that nasty misunderstanding. Cast adrift by the financial crisis and hesitant romance, he saves his soul on a journey with a Bon-Vivant friend through South American landmarks, women and culture. His jilted lady-friend staggers through a series of dating nightmares. Patrick just can’t get her out of his mind. He cuts the trip short and comes home resolved to win her back. Imagine combining the best parts of an “Eat Pray Love” (of men) and “The Motorcycle Diaries” with a splash of “The Hangover “.
