Summary
Eli Bloom, a piano prodigy, has gotten the most important audition of his life. But before he can go, he must drop his mother off at drug rehab. Since she has to test positive for admission, the two end up at her dealer's door seeking one last score. But problems arise when mom can't pay and dealer is low on product, thus creating a series of comically unfortunate obstacles to each character's goals
