Combining performance footage of Tom Waits and his band with dramatic set pieces, this unique concert film showcases Waits' many talents. Waits plays a number of different characters in short vignettes, such as a ticket taker and a lighting operator.

These scenes also incorporate Waits performing songs, which are taken mostly from his "Frank" albums. As the film moves across different areas of the theater, Waits also performs a series of monologues, demonstrating adept showmanship.
