Maggie, a single mother, moves into a new home in Brooklyn with her 12-year old son, Oliver. Forced to work long hours, she has no choice but to leave Oliver in the care of their new neighbor, Vincent, a retired Vietnam vet curmudgeon. Together with a pregnant stripper, named Daka, Vincent brings Oliver along on all the stops that make up his daily routine – the race track, a strip club, and the local dive bar. While Vincent helps Oliver grow to become a man, Oliver begins to see in Vincent something that no one else is able to: a misunderstood man with a good heart.
