  September, 2008. Lou is a true-blue Chicagoan, ten years sober, and the owner of an old school video store struggling to stay relevant in a digital world and a gentrifying neighborhood. Cigarette in one hand, ukulele in the other, he’s watching the world change around him when a stranger with tattooed hands walks in and offers him a radical way out. Once he steps out from behind the counter, the stranger introduces him to a moonlit, psychedelic Chicago not found in any guidebooks or top ten lists. Forced to confront the disappearance of his twin brother and his own demons, Lou’s trip into the underworld could save his life or unleash the hell broth that bubbles just below the surface of the city.
