TV Repairman Don Juan vs. Love and the Mob
April Fools' Day, 1961, leaves Gil "Hunny" Hunnicutt stiffed on a TV service call, and he'll be damned if he doesn't get paid. His mission nearly kills him at the gun-toting hands of a crazy lady, but she isn't the only lady who pulls a gun on him and isn't the only crazy lady in his life that month.
While he envisions an unappealing future and has a slippery hold on a new-found love, he's still tethered to his two polar-opposite sisters and isn't sure, at his core, which one of them he's more like. His wandering "antenna" has had a chokehold on him for much of his life, but now he's ready for love's chokehold. However, first he has to free himself from the chokehold of the Albanian Mob, which he's stepped in like dog doo-doo.
His journey leads him to Judy Garland and Carnegie Hall, a hitman in drag, questionable deaths, FBI spooks, and his very own felony—courtesy of the Mob—all while juggling family demands, true love, homophobia, racism, and the curse of shadow puppet shows. Hunny learns growing up is hard, especially for an old dog who's used to running in circles, chasing tail.
