Two men beg and borrow money to start a neighborhood bar. Initially the bar thrives, then the crowds start to dwindle. The two then add music and hire a top notch chef, which boosts business again - for a time. Basically the film examines the travails of a small business owner and shows the up and down nature of such a business. The twosome not only suffer business depressions, but also personal problems as one loses his long time girl friend and the other loses his day job. Written by

A touching slice of life drama with a basis in reality.
Walter Foote's first film, like many of his father's (Horton Foote), tells the quiet story of real people. It showcases the drama inherent in everyone's daily life. By resisting the urge to delve into fantastical or extreme scenarios, Foote tells a story that regular working people can relate to. Ronnie and Dave's journey is one that we can all easily tag along on, and sympathize with as it turns inside out.
