What if you were assigned a New Year’s resolution from one New Year’s Eve to the next New Year’s Eve?

As they mingle and enjoy cocktails, one friend pulls out a card game. At the stroke of midnight, each of them pulls a random card with an assigned New Year’s resolution. They read it with inebriated eyes and toss the card over a French Quarter balcony as fireworks display from Jackson Square and the Mississippi River.
Diverse group of friends, both socioeconomically and romantically. They are in different stages of life, and they have a different vision for their life. But the resolution takes each of them on terrifying and hilarious directions.
