The subject of gentrification is touched upon some, as the Shopsins diner must relocate from the eclectic space it occupies into a more contemporary facility. The star of this documentary is Kenny Shopsin, part Woody Allen, part Moondog Rex, and all character.This man has philosophy on tap.
Kenny’s children, who range from ne’er do well to future community college dropout, give a helping hand, sometimes in a very loose sense of the word. He has a loving wife, and loyal customers even though we’re led to believe that Kenny is someone who is more “tolerated” than truly liked. He’s the bread winner of the family and prepares a dank lunch..
