Life is what happens to other people in the daylight...
These characters attempt to stay afloat while swimming through grief. They have varying degrees of hope about reaching the other side.
Set in NYC '77, a rag tag band of accidental outlaws at war with their pasts fall into a series of high rolling, high risk relationships and the altered state that love in its most extreme form engenders, an intoxication that is as mind altering as any pharmaceutical.
These broken-hearted hipsters include:
~a fragile feminine reject of the American Dream (Julie Atlas Muz) ~a middle-aged Jewish man trying to avoid both himself and his past (Austin Pendleton)
~his wife who has failed to provide the emotional refuge she'd promised (Annette Benda-Fox)
~the younger actor who believes he is their salvation and always just one audition away from Hollywood nights (Peter Collier)
~Two complex Latinas that transcend typical stereotypes (Karina Ortiz, Connie Castanzo)
