Brief Synopsis

An ensemble comedy about a day in the life of a barbershop on the south side of Chicago. It''s Calvin''s shop, and he inherited the struggling business from his father, but with bills to pay and a baby on the way, he sees the shop as a burden and a waste of time. After selling the shop to a local loan shark, Calvin slowly begins to see his father''s vision and legacy and struggles with the notion that he just sold it out. Calvin''s barbershop is filled with an eclectic and comedic cast of folk who share their stories, jokes, trials and tribulations. In the shop we find Eddie, an old barber with a big mouth, strong opinions and no customers. Jimmy is a highly educated barber with a superiority complex who can''t stand Isaac, the new, white barber who just wants a shot at cutting some hair. Ricky is an ex-con with two strikes against him and is desperately trying to stay straight. Terri is a hard-edged woman who can''t seem to leave her two-timing boyfriend. And lastly there''s Dinka, a fellow barber who is madly in love with Terri but doesn''t get the time of day.
