Synopsis

Tommy Basilio is a 31 years old barfly, an unemployed auto mechanic with quick wits and a huge chip on his shoulder. A master of verbal repartee, he spends most of his nights at his favorite bar, Trees Lounge, hunched over a shot of Wild Turkey or trying to pick up one night stands. When he loses his pregnant girlfriend to his best friend and former boss, he makes an attempt to put his life back together. He finds temporary salvation driving his deceased uncle’s ice cream truck, but gets dangerously close to his seventeen year old helper, Debbie. Lessons aren’t learned easily by Tommy, but he does find a disturbing truth about himself in the last place he expects, Trees Lounge.
