It's been two years since Josh had staged his suicide.  Once Larry was outed, Josh believed the only way out was to "die."  So here he is in Colorado enjoying the beauty around him.  And better yet, he now has a girlfriend.  Janine reminds him so much of his mother.  She is a free spirit who really enjoys life.  The only problem Josh has with her is that she loves to shop.  That goes against the anti-consumerism beliefs that made Josh's alter ego Larry famous.  Just when Josh starts feeling comfortable with his new life, everything changes.  His old friend Beth shows up and kidnaps him.  She is determined that he will resurrect Larry and run for political office in Massachusetts.  But Josh gets a better idea.  Larry for President.  Sure, they know that he is too young but it's the message that is important.  Can they really expect to pull this off?  And what about Larry's old nemesis betagold?  Is she still out to get him?
