Growing up in the shadow of the Chrysler Building in the Sixties, George Sabro hungered to enter the world of the rich and famous he watched on television. A series of events in the Seventies led the Times Square bartender to become a paid lover, celebrity photographer, Studio-54 semi-regular, and briefly a millionaire. Now reduced to washing dishes in a coffee shop, George is desperate to get his fifteen minutes of fame before turning fifty. Hanging up his apron, he picks up a cereal box, walks onto Sixth Avenue, and starts taking hostages.
