Joel Thomas has a shot to land the job of his dreams. But when he learns the company runs a background check, he has one week to try and erase his past before it ruins his future.
Synopsis: Joel Thomas is your typical twenty something slacker. He drinks too much, smokes too much pot, and spends too much time goofing around with his two best friends, Mark and Noah. But when he learns about an exciting job oppurtunity he decides to interview and start taking life more seriously. The interview goes great. In fact it couldn't go better. It looks like the job is his. That is until he learns about the background check - a company policy they take veeeery seriously. Now he and his friends have one week to hide all the crazy shit he's done in the past so that his new employer won't find out.

Along the way Joel also falls in love with a girl who works at the office. Just one more complication and one more reason why he needs to erase all evidence of his misspent youth.
