Based on his stage monologues, Marc Meyers's feature film debut is a collage of eleven tales capturing thirty-something New Yorkers struggling to find love and connection in the big city. Among the elegantly drawn characters whose lives briefly intersect on a New York City bus are a tourist, an immigrant, a sex addict, and a woman who is newly awakened to her own psychic powers and senses imminent tragedy.
