Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Consumed by visions of prosperity and clean, attractive cities, Silva travels to New York City from Poland with all the cash she can scrape together in her purse, speaking not one word of English. Once there, she swiftly falls prey to an aggressive con artist, and sees nothing but the dingy crime-filled streets which represent New York at its worst. Refusing to be ignored by the man who took her money, she hounds him until he takes her to bed with him, and then her relationships expand to include the creep's cousin. At no point is a good time had by anyone.
