Quincy is a twenty-something repeat loser. He's got a mile-long rap-sheet of petty, nonviolent offenses but hasn't made any effort to change his ways. When he's busted again, this time for drunk and disorderly, the system has had enough and the powers that be decide to utilize creative sentencing as a last ditch effort to straighten Quincy out. His fate? To work off his community service hours as a party clown in a low-income, government housing complex. Quincy does his best to walk the high road but his intentions are tested when he reluctantly befriends a young Hispanic boy who's being abused by his alcoholic father. A sexy single mom Quincy is falling for further complicates a climactic decision that may change his life forever.
