Dishwasher, Ritchie is stuck in a state of marijuana while bartender Connie keeps a goodhearted spirit about the bar. Down and out patrons  'Crazy' Phil, a schizophrenic and 'Crackwhore' Mary, a drug addicted prostitute bring an eye opening way of life that others choose to judge so quickly. Throughout the day Stan's and everyone's lives are brought to light one by one. Stan's personal life, hidden by his gruff and abusive demeanor is exposed through the Bar's patrons and employees. This journey will take you on a roller-coaster ride of emotions and in the end you will realize that love comes in many different forms.
