  • Overview
    A bittersweet comedy.

    It's Josie's birthday, but she's in no mood to celebrate her special day. That's until Lionel, Josie's most loyal client, a dry cleaner who longs for a full head of hair (and wife), insists she must have a party. The guest list is small: Martha, Josie's obsessive compulsive cleaner; and a Chinese Elvis impersonator who isn't even really Chinese. A few songs later there's a knock at the door and an extraordinary chain of events is set in motion. It's now or never for them all.
