Jacques, the curmudgeonly owner of a gritty New York dive bar, is determinedly drinking and smoking himself to death when he meets Lucas, a homeless young man who has already given up on life. Determined to keep his legacy alive, Jacques deems Lucas is a fitting heir and takes him under his wing. Lucas is a quick study, but their friendship is put to the test when the distraught and beautiful April shows up at the bar seeking shelter, and Lucas insists they help her out.
