Raskins is closing. The demise of this venerable Brooklyn diner, a fixture in the life of the working-class community, will have a profound impact that extends far beyond the economics of a real estate deal. Once the news is out, the multi-racial, multi-generational staff and customers are left to grapple with a suddenly cloudy future over the course of a long, tense day. As unspoken thoughts and deep-seated attitudes rise to the surface, these individuals collide in love and pain, generating disturbing conflicts and surprising bonds, all of which challenge conventional assumptions about class and racial identity.
