What do an out of work disc jockey, a pimp, and an Italian have in common? A single jail cell in New Orleans. When Zack (Tom Waits) and Jack (John Lurie) are both arrested and jailed for a crime they did not commit, they are placed in a jail cell with Roberto; a cheerful Italian man convicted of manslaughter. Despite their differences, they must learn to work together if they want to escape their predicament.

Live music by Joe Nolan in the lobby prior to the show.
