Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Unemployed newpaperman George Murphy's frantic search for an infusion of cash to help him pay the rent on his apartment so that his wife and child can move back in with him turns into a philosophical journey through all the neighborhoods and subcultures of the island of Manhattan. At first, he goes to look up a fellow journalist, who lives in a rundown building where all the apartment numbers have been destroyed. As he follows one lead after another, his search becomes more generalized, until he finally achieves some sort of catharsis on Wall Street. This independent, largely experimental film is the first of a trilogy by director Amir Naderi, all set in Manhattan.
