The Mustard Jar throbs to the harsh backbeat of the sounds and emotions of Philadelphia in the mid 1980's. Tom Clausens mundane teenage existence takes a long, lyrical series of left turns as he comes to grips with bandmates, divorced parents and the elusive shadow of a girl named Tara. Along this path he discovers the brutal honesty of love, faith and life in a world of rigid expectations.
