Clem owns the only diner in Brighton and prefers to be left alone. After growing up around then barely escaping one of the toughest motorcycle gangs in of Chicago, Clem just wants peace. Rick has always lived on the outskirts of society, finding it far safer and more comfortable to stay in his library surrounded by the books he loves. These two people who seem to be complete opposites find they have more in common than either of them realize. The tattooed, bear of a biker and the quiet, unassuming librarian show the residents of Brighton that an old bear can learn a few new tricks from the local bookworm.
