For example, "Idaho Powwow" is about 4 guys in their 40s and 50s who each made severe mistakes in their pasts, which set each one of them back considerably. But, they're intelligent enough to recognize when they need help, and then reach out for it. This foursome form their own private men's support group and once a quarter they drop whatever they're doing and they meet up for a weekend in their own exclusive men's retreat.
