Once a Garden

Story: Once a Garden follows three artists in mourning for a lost friend and a lost New York. Leaving the funeral of Kevin, whose wife Sarah died in 9-11 and for whom that loss proves too much, Mikey, Lou and Nicky, seek solace in the public garden Sarah used to tend,and in a seemingly bottomless flask of booze. Unable to find comfort,the three men,an outsider artist, a refugee from television and a self styled "drunken poet and middle aged fraud", scour the bars of Manhattan looking for the city the used to love. Along the way they meet a radical Arab-American Professor, Patriotic Teamsters, Conga playing Jazz Musicians, Republican Bartenders and three beautiful, but eccentric, women. Their Odyssey climaxes in a long night in a Soho loft complete with Chemical Substances, Bathtub Kisses, Italian lessons, Marmite, Poetry and Despair.
