Description: An American artist living a bohemian existence in Paris, Tom Warshaw tries to make sense of his troubled adult life by reflecting upon his extraordinary childhood… The year is 1973, and 13-year-old Greenwich Village native Tommy Warshaw is on the brink of becoming a man. While his bereaved single mother continues to mourn the death of his father, Tommy escapes his own grief by causing trouble at school and making afternoon meat deliveries with his best friend Pappas, a mentally challenged janitor. Following the romantic advice offered by Lady -- incarcerated in the infamous Greenwich Village Women's House of Detention for shadowy reasons -- Tommy even experiences his first taste of love. Yet, when an unexpected tragedy radically alters his world, Tommy must make a life-defining choice -- one that will compel the adult Tom Warshaw, 30 years later, to confront his unfinished past.
