It's late Friday night at Lou's Bar when Stella drops in for her customary nightcap. What transpires provides a moving exploration of love and loss in relation to friends, family, and marriage. How much are we willing to risk, and how much is it worth? Stella and Lou examines these questions with tremendous heart, humor, and above all, hope.
