Broken Moments, according to press notes, "is the name of a dive bar owned by the recently deceased James Monroh. On this night the regulars (each arch-typed bar characters) are gathering to pay their respects the best way they know how. During this wake/reading of the will - we find out some of their underlying drama. We also experience three brothers celebrating the youngest's 21st birthday and we catch the end of a drunken bachelorette party. All three groups intertwine their dialogue, action and music to create an experience never to be forgotten."
