Brad's Status

The success you’ve been searching for may be right next to you.


Brad's Status
Brad, a father, has a satisfying career and a comfortable life in suburban California, but it’s not quite what he imagined during his glory days in college. He keeps comparing his life with those of his four college friends, wondering what it would be like to have their well-paying and glamorous jobs. When circumstances force him to reconnect with his buddies, he soon begins to question whether he has failed, or is in some ways the most successful of them all.
