New York.

After not being picked up at the Port Authority bus station, an abandoned Paul is thrust into brutal city life battling means of survival and morality. Finding salvation in the form of his love for a beautiful woman of color from a vibrant dance community in the Bronx, NY, Paul is left alone to face the discomfort of navigating a romance as he grows into his own identity.
