Dr. Bill Hoffman is a brilliant therapist with a lucrative practice and the author of several definitive psychotherapy texts.
His success and over-inflated ego is dealt a blow when he is forced to come to grips with the end of his 25-year marriage. At the same time he needs to deal with the news that his daughter is dating her psychology professor - a man old enough to be her father. Things are changing way too fast and Bill is struggling to keep up.
When it comes to his group patients, Bill also has his work cut out for him. The newest group member, Dave, recently attempted suicide by jumping out of his office window and landing on his boss and Jonathan is a self-avowed metro-sexual who is in serious denial that he might possibly be gay.
Inger is a 25-year-old,self-made millionaire who lacks social skills and hasn't had a real date in over six years, Darlene has too many psychological issues to count - including an obsession with Bill - and Michael has anger issues at work, which is what led him into mandatory group therapy.
