Plot Synopsis

When Jack's father, Tony, has a heart attack and is forced to hand over the keys to his beloved handyman business, Jack is eager to finally step up and make his father proud. Unfortunately, Jack's past career efforts have been less than stellar, so everyone seems to be waiting for him to fail. His new job isn't made any easier by Tony's rebellious, troublemaker assistant, Darren, and Darren's flirtatious sister, Stitch, who works at the local hardware store. Yet with the support of his Aunt Terry and Mason, his oddball-yet-endearing cousin, Jack may just find his true calling right at home.
