In a tucked away corner of North Philly, six regulars gather at a neighborhood watering hole. Over twenty years, they turn their collective memories into a vivacious mythology. The tales they’d rather forget, however, keep sneaking up and tapping them on the shoulder. At Daphne’s Dive, an aloe plant, a girl’s sneaker, a stiff drink, and mounds of trash become talismanic treasures to a group of outsiders trying to be “in” together.

Fantastic sense of humor, lively and magnetic, glowing with life, and has a cutting sense of humor; she's seen it all; also can be tough--�she tends bar and can throw down if she needs to; outwardly, she'�s the reason locals return to this bar time and again; when it comes to true intimacy and friendship, though, she�'s guarded and closed off; there'�s some serious Catholic shame brewing in there.
