Jack Cooper blames the internet for everything bad that’s happened to him, and he badly needs an update. Once a king of computer coding and a Space Invaders champion to boot, he's now middle-aged, unemployed, cynical and sarcastic. He drinks too much and is addicted to online hook ups. His wife wants a divorce, his single daughter is expecting a baby and his shameful, twenty-something, species-confused son dresses as a bear. But when Jack’s daughter engineers a job for him at totally-lit tech firm Sweet, he’s confronted by a Generation Y and Z culture he detests. He loathes every detail – every Instant Message, gif and emoji, and the constant broadcasting of "success" on social media. Can Jack ever relate to the gender-neutral, app-wielding, digitally-connected snowflakes at his new politically-correct company, or will he remain a dinosaur stuck in the 1980s?And will Jack halt his slide into loneliness and repair things with his family?
