Synopsis "Marty, an angry, barely sober, very sad middle-aged divorcé, and Buster, his ex-brother-in law, observe a long-standing tradition: Park Day. On the first really warm day of the year, they meet in a small urban park to watch the children play, to consume beverages and spew sometimes venomous philosophies. This Park Day will be different from others, however, because normally submissive, inactive Buster has decided it is time for the long-estranged Marty to meet the grandson he has never been allowed to see. Marty, having long since buried his loss in rage and self-righteousness, is woefully unprepared for this reunion. After shunning the child, he prepares to launch a one-man campaign to rid the city of children, which he views as the root of all unhappiness. But we all know he will probably only make it as far as the nearest bar."
