What is this?
It's an indie/comedy/drama/adventure. And a love letter to NYC and its diverse population.

What is it about?
A quirky photojournalist/digital-nomad who must find a way back to his free-spirited life on the road, after a former employer traps him in NYC. He ventures across the boroughs, meeting various New Yorkers who absurdly complicate the process, and in some cases, force him to re-examine his lifestyle altogether.
