SHERMAN’S WAY starts with two strangers forced into a road trip of convenience only to veer off the path into a quirky exploration of friendship, fatherhood and the task of finding one’s place in the world – a world in which one wrong turn can change your destination. The discord begins when Sherman, (Michael Shulman) a young, uptight Ivy-Leaguer, finds himself stranded on the West Coast with an eccentric stranger and washed-up, middle-aged former athlete Palmer (James Le Gros) in an attempt to make it down to Beverly Hills in time for a career-making internship at a prestigious law firm. The two couldn’t be more incompatible. Palmer is a reckless charmer with a zest for life; Sherman is an arrogant snob with a sense of entitlement. The only thing this odd couple seems to share is the refusal to accept responsibility for their lives. Soon, Sherman meets the free spirited Addy (Brooke Nevin) who is unlike anyone he’s ever known. As a romance ensues, Sherman discovers what he’s made of and what life is really all about.
