    • Synopsis
    • Bishop is something of a local legend for his enthusiastic and singular techniques when it comes to panhandling in a now up and coming Brooklyn neighborhood. When his corner bodega closes early, he strikes up a conversation with Jeff, a guitar player who performs at a nearby restaurant twice a week. They quickly connect over their shared artistic struggles. When Jeff goes back into the restaurant to perform, Bishop cannot help but follow to get a drink and have a listen. It is clear from the moment Bishop walks in that he is not welcome. He does his best to support Jeff and be the ideal audience member but his boisterous presence only serves to further highlight his invasion and deepen the tense atmosphere. Jeff takes it upon himself to attempt to diffuse the electric situation. In so doing, he confronts the societal pressures and biases projected by those enveloping them. Even if Jeff can feel what is right, will he compromise in the hopes of getting a seat at the table?
