“★★★★”– Roger Ebert

“Extraordinary. If there╩╝s an independent cinema, this is it.” – Richard Brody, The New Yorker

“Bracingly fresh.” – Michael Sragow, Baltimore Sun

SYNOPSIS: At a neighborhood karaoke bar, friends and family gather to remember a young man who passed away. Knowing little about his final days, they attempt to reconstruct his life. In the process, they offer a window onto their own lives, an evocative picture of working-class America, dislocated from the progress and mobility around them, but united in pursuit of a shared dream.
