Lemon (Barry Kneller), a hard-working Los Angeles repair man is going nowhere. Although his blue-collar parents love him, they don’t have high expectations for him and his Dad, Arthur (Dan Lauria) insists that Lemon should stick to what he does best - repairing things.
One day, Lemon meets Lester (Willie C. Carpenter), a homeless war Veteran, and the two strike up an unlikely friendship. Kind-hearted Lester gives him the emotional support he is missing elsewhere in his life and Lemon’s self-confidence begins to grow. Things begin to look up for Lemon when he is asked to audition for a movie but after he performs miserably he’s back to square one!
Despite this setback, Lemon keeps his chin up and with the help of Esther (Rachel Miner) a pretty girl with a broken heart in need of mending, he refuses to give up hope of a better life in this heart-warming and uplifting film. Set in modern-day Los Angeles, Life of Lemon reminds us all that if we want great things to happen in our lives, then we have to start by believing in ourselves first!
