Going for Broke
A neurotic, minor league pro-athlete struggles with family and finances to hold it all together for his teenage daughter
STUART DOUGAL is a pro athlete and proud father of a precocious 13-year-old daughter, HAILEY DOUGAL-HERTINSKI. Normally a teenager would be proud of a pro-athlete dad. But normally, that dad wouldn’t still be toiling in the minor leagues. As a golfer. Stuart’s ex and Hailey’s mom, SHANA, has since moved on to greener pastures, marrying KENNETH, a guy she met after visiting a cosmetic surgeon for a no-cost consultation - Kenneth being the cosmetic surgeon. Now, Hailey has a higher credit limit than her dad, who made $17,437 dollars last year. Throw in a looming fortieth birthday and a precarious dating life, and it’s all Stuart can do to keep his career from wreaking havoc with his personal life, while his personal life wreaks havoc with his career.
