A reporter struggles with her first day at work, a rebellious teen attempts to balance her feminist ideals, and a young man reconciles with his ex-girlfriend as her brother threatens revenge. Meanwhile, an avid music lover wanders in search of a rare record, all during a single day in New York City.
Expanding on his esteemed 2014 short, Dustin Guy Defa composes a multi-layered love letter to the streets of New York. Shooting on richly textured Super 16mm, Defa weaves together a series of shaggy character portraits, each lending its own harmonic register to this amiably ambling city symphony.
