Synopsis by Sandra Brennan

Nineteen unsavory characters find their lives briefly intertwined one Friday afternoon in a Brooklyn neighborhood in this sometimes funny, sometimes dramatic offering from Cinque Lee (brother of distinguished director Spike Lee). None of the characters are actors and all of them use their actual names. Even Lee appears as an escapee from a mental hospital who is trying to rebuild a relationship with his troubled estranged son Ari. Lee must also find the medication he needs to function. Meanwhile Ari's mother looks for him while her husband is accidentally nabbed by a car jacker. In other vignettes, a rookie magician messes up her very first gig, a lesbian pimp attempts to woo back her old girl friend and a drug dealer frantically searches for a missing stash.
