Ben Singer is a failed folk singer, newly unemployed proofreader, and every-other-weekend dad to his young daughter. The only thing he takes comfort in is smoking marijuana and chess games with Ibou, his Senegalese roommate. When Ibou becomes ill, a municipal employee exacerbates the emergency situation, and Ben pours his energy into a lawsuit against the city. Meanwhile, Ibou's beautiful sister Khadi arrives from Senegal, and Ben's life begins to turn around

I was thorougly disappointed and bored with this film. Matthew appeared depressed throughout the entire film. I can understand the depressing tone in the beginning, but with such a pleasant title, I had anticipated and hoped for an uplifting ending, him being more animated as a singer of children's music. Thus, it was just too unrealistic his monotone singing and the kids being older in today's age being exposed to hip hop and other modern sounds just didn't seem real. I really was expecting a "A Wonder Life," kind of feel, but it just never made it.
