The Last Rites of Joe May Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Despite all evidence to the contrary, aging short-money hustler Joe May (Dennis Farina) always believed he had a glorious future ahead of him. Now in his sixties, Joe is released from the hospital after a long battle with pneumonia and forced to confront the harsh reality of his legacy: everyone he knew had assumed he was dead, and life had gone on around him without missing a beat. Returning to his old neighborhood in Chicago's "Patch" district, he finds his car gone, all his worldly possessions pawned by his landlord, and the apartment he's lived in his entire adult life rented out to a single mother named Jenny and her 8-year-old daughter Angelina. After a rough night's sleep outdoors, Joe reluctantly moves in with the new tenants of his home - at least until he is able to get back on his feet. Even as Joe doggedly pursues his comeback, he finds the odds stacked drastically against him.
