Jacques (Brian Cox) is the owner of a seedy New York bar frequented by an assortment of hardened regulars. Jacques is resolutely drinking and smoking himself to death. Renowned for his bad tempered outbursts, he befriend a homeless younger man, Lucas (Paul Dano) who has virtually given up on his life already.
Seeing Lucas as a man who can keep his legacy alive, Jacques show him the ropes and rules of his bar, which Lucas quickly learns: no new customers, no fraternizing with customers and, absolutely no women.
However their friendship is put to the test when the distraught and beautiful April (Isild Le Besco) shows up at the bar seeking shelter, and Lucas insists they help her out.
