Bill, an out-of-work poet, puts his heart, soul, and last few dollars into starting an all-organic, mostly-vegetarian food stand. New friend Donnie promotes the business and helps Bill pursue Agnes, a poetry-lover who frequents the stand. Curtis, an enigmatic life-philosopher, buoys Bill's spirits with his positive attitude and love of vegetarian food. Complications with the business jeopardize these budding friendships and threaten Bill's dreams for a hot dog-free future.
