Mid-life crises overtake a group of friends in this charming romantic comedy set in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Michael, Franklin and Lloyd are facing the precipice of middle-age. Michael, a former indie rocker, is a new dad and not sure how he feels about his life of comfortable domesticity. Franklin is a recently divorced college professor who's convinced he's a loser and no one will love him ever, ever again. Lloyd is an aspiring novella-ist and reluctant part-time notary who's most successful at eating nachos and shunning commitment from his longtime on-again/off-again friend-with-benefits Kit. "Lefty Loosey Righty Tighty" is the story of three friends who are too old to be young. And too young to be old.
