High-power tech executive, Steven Kerner, is living the American dream in Southern California. But he isnt enjoying it. After another fight with his wife, he finds himself at a seedy bar far from home where an eccentric mystery man named Andy Monroe reveals that he knows more about Steven than he might suspect.
When Steven drives home, his bottled pain ignites in anger, and his wife kicks him out to work out his anger and controlling issues on his own. Reluctantly, Steven begins driving around with Andy in his 1970 Chevy Electra convertible, unravelling his tightly-wound world, and leading to a series of frustrating and painful encounters intended to help Steven let go of his tight grip on fear, shame, relationships, and control. Through the genuine friendship that develops, and the grace and love of a God whos been patiently directing him to it, Steven finally accepts the very thing hes needed all along.
A fictionalized version of a true story of healing, the profound but simple steps move from awakening to ones emotions, to exchanging safety for messy vulnerability, and finally to transforming from self-focus to the destiny God intended. An unusually powerful story of challenging ones fears and encouraging deep trust, Bos Café is a model journey for all who struggle with unresolved anger, trust issues, and a performance-based life. There is a fuller, more authentic way of living, and this semi-fictional journey of healing shows the way to find it through Gods unbridled grace.
