Logline
A pair of troublemaking slackers have 72 hours to save their failing used car dealership, their friendship, and themselves.
Synopsis
Stuck in a dead-end sales job at a shady dealership, Brandon and Leo were always destined for mediocrity. But when their boss gets arrested and things take a turn for the better (or the worse?) at work, the duo have a chance to finally step up and make something of themselves.

Between keeping the IRS off their backs and a rival dealership off their case, dealing with the women, weed, and occasional 2 hour employee lunch break seems like light work. The road back to respectability is a long, bumpy test drive.
