Synopsis:

In a dive-y gay bar on Manhattan’s lower east side, the regulars and
the restless others do battle, joke and drink their way through a lonely winter evening. Different generations and backgrounds collide, secrets are revealed and old wounds are torn anew as these survivors come to grips with life, loss and aging in the 21st century. Family and friendship are the focus of this humor filled drama.
