Laurence ‘Tubby’ Passmore, a successful sitcom writer, wealthy, married, with a platonic mistress, is suddenly struck by a mid-life crisis, and no amount of cognitive therapy, physiotherapy, aromatherapy, and acupuncture seem to alleviate his angst nor his inexplicable knee pain. As he becomes obsessed with the philosophy of Kierkegaard, he sets off on a quest for happiness.
