Plot Summary

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 John Sacksteder
