The first step to finding your destiny is leaving your mother's basement.


Jeff, Who Lives at Home
An off-beat comedy about a slacker who lives in the basement of his mom's house. He has yet to find his direction in life, and instead spends his time smoking pot, watching ''Signs'' and looking for meaningful coincidences. One day a wrong number call sets him off to hook up with his brother, which sets things in motion leading to the climax. Meanwhile, his mom is busy with an office romance.
