Jason Kelly attends his grandmother’s funeral, where he reunites with his grandfather, Army veteran Dick, who is now widowed after 40 years of marriage. Jason and Dick were once very close, but have since drifted apart, mainly due to Jason’s new job as a corporate attorney, where he works with his father David. After the funeral, Dick personally requests that Jason drive him from his home in Georgia to Boca Raton, Florida. Jason is uncomfortable with the situation, as is his uptight and controlling fiancee Meredith Goldstein, but reluctantly agrees to do so.
The next day, Jason walks in on Dick playing music records and masturbating to pornography. Officially beginning their journey, Dick chides Jason for giving up his dream of becoming a photographer and traveling the world, but Jason insists he is happy in his current position. While stopping at a diner, the duo encounter Shadia, a former classmate of Jason’s from his photography class when he attended The University of Georgia, as well as her friends Lenore who needs to finish her trifecta (sleep with a freshman, an alumnus and a professor) and Bradley. Dick introduces himself as a college professor and Jason as a photographer for Time magazine, leaving out his family connections. Lenore, who wants to sleep with Dick, invites the duo to join them in their quest to Daytona Beach, where they are headed for spring break, but Jason insists they should carry on to Boca.
Afterwards, Jason and Dick hit the golf course, where Dick flirts with women while denying his relationship with Jason. Jason is shocked that his grandfather would flirt with women immediately after his wife’s funeral, but Dick proclaims it is okay because he was never unfaithful to his wife during forty years of marriage, claiming he has not had sex for fifteen years because of his wife’s cancer and that she insisted he “get back out there”. Hearing Dick’s plea, Jason reluctantly agrees to go to Daytona.
Upon their arrival in Daytona, Jason and Dick meet up with Shadia and Lenore on the beach, where they also meet the girls’ boyfriends Cody and Brah, both of whom Dick takes an immediate disliking to. Dick laces his own drink with Xanax, but Jason accidentally drinks it while competing in a drinking game. While partying with the girls, Dick witnesses, and records, Jason, wearing nothing but a hornet fanny pack, partying while highly intoxicated, and smoking crack from a local shop owner/drug dealer Pam. Jason later steals a motorcycle and drives off.
