They fly back and forth, in between jobs and friends, simply to try to make their relationship work. But much like most cases, distance is slowly tearing them apart.

Distance also stars Jason Sudeikis (Saturday Night Live) and Charlie Day (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), who, together with Justin Long pull off an amazing improv about the wonders of mustache, baby pigeons, and dry humping.
