Plot Summary
Set against the backdrop of the underground music and art scenes in New York, "Margarita Happy Hour" is a film about life after the party.

The heroine of this real life "Sex and the City" quintet is Zelda (Eleanor Hutchins), an artist and unwed mother struggling to hold on to her persona as sexy, rock star-seducing siren.
