This comedy drama is composed of a series of partly improvised vignettes each following different patrons of a little tobacco shop located in Brooklyn. Auggie Wren is the poetically inclined manager of the Brooklyn Cigar Co., a neighborhood institution located near Prospect Park. His regular customers like to hang out, chat with Auggie and hear him tell the stories about the other store patrons. Their lives interweave and connect is this small quiet corner of the city.
