COMEDY. Everything seems to be going just fine for Joe Carbone, the owner of a poultry plant, until one day, he finds that he just doesn’t have the stomach to kill chickens anymore. Joe keeps his problem a secret from his workers at the slaughterhouse and decides to moonlight as a waiter at Angie’s Coffeehouse. Unsure whether he should sell the business and change his profession, Joe asks a host of wacky coffeehouse customers about their jobs. Along the way, Joe meets a gravedigger, an astrologist, a rabbi, and a suicide-prevention counselor. Will the loveable Joe Carbone continue to slaughter chickens for a living, or will he find a new job? This character-driven comedy satirizes the absurd workplace situations people face every day.
