    No, it’s not a musical – but the name of a Texas bar where the lives of an expelled novice nun, a young man who falls instantly in love with her (nun or not!), her caring aunt and her ex-biker boyfriend who tries his hand straightening things out, intersect in a laugh-out-loud comedy that is romantic and touching at the same time.

    Margaret Walsh, a lifelong resident of Southie, a blue collar Boston neighborhood, is fired for tardiness from her job as a cashier at a dollar store. A single mother with a handicapped adult daughter, Margaret discusses her options with her two best friends. Things look bleak until she guilt-trips an old boyfriend from high school who has done well for himself into inviting her to his party, where she hopes to find a new employer. Things go from bad to worse before Margaret gets help from a caring individual and finds new hope that things will turn out all right.
