Theme: 7 Deadly Sins vs. the Oil Company

Twenty-year-old Margie Meyn has just returned from France, where she studied culinary arts under a renowned French chef. She's about to open a restaurant, from an inheritance she'll receive on her twenty-first birthday. Although she has recently gone on a diet from all that delicious French cuisine, she decides to splurge once a week at the Waffle Hut. Here she meets Michel Boudreaux, an eighty-year-old Cajun man who speaks a dialect of half English/half French. Every Sunday they hang out in the same booth, eating and sharing the ups and downs of their lives. Of course Boudreaux knows about her inheritance too.

We soon learn that Boudreaux, outside of the diner, has been investigating seven of the regular patrons that he and Margie joke with. Evidently he has identified each one with a Deadly Sin. He knows secrets about them, if revealed, will expose them for the horrible people they are. After all, it's the same crowd week after week, and they all know each other quite well after ten Sundays.

The number ten--to Boudreaux--has special meaning. Ancient scholars thought it was the perfect number. He decides therefore on this special occasion to pull out an old Colt .45 and hold up the place.

Throughout the night Boudreaux confronts the Seven, making them face up to the woe of their ways. Margie may even learn some things about herself. More importantly, we see a group being formed through virtue that must confront the moral dilemma of the gulf Oil spill and how it has affected their lives.
