One of Cleveland’s oldest karaoke bars — the Karaoke Korner – may have to close its doors forever, unless its long-time proprietor can convince the new building owner NOT to change it into, of all things, a cider pub and bistro.  The neighborhood around them is slowly gentrifying and the traditional bar culture slowly dying.  In the face of losing their beloved watering hole and musical stage, the longtime patrons embark on a plan to save the Karaoke Korner and keep things the way they have always been. It all comes down to one final night, where the beer flows freely and the karaoke soars higher than Steve Perry’s vocals on Don’t Stop Believin’.
