When Eric and Raj, old high school buds, try to build the next great app and become billionaires - they don't.

When ERIC NEWMAN, a shy corporate professional on the cusp of his 30's, gets laid off out of the blue, a chance meeting with long-lost techie buddy RAJ PATEL leads to scheming on startup billionaire dreams. With the help of a grassroots team led by the multi-talented JEANINE GENET, Eric and Raj may just be on the road to riches, freedom and finding their true calling. But what starts off promising soon turns into a slippery slope of growing sacrifices, leading them to not just question what they should really be doing with their lives, but also, like, how long they have left to live.
