A gritty telling of the LGBT homeless youth of New York - a confident, homeless transgender woman falls in love with a street-wise, homeless former drug dealer. She is forced to navigate the dangerous backstreets of New York by employing the help of an ill-intentioned journalist.

Having swindled and misled his clients, a financial broker and his family are kidnapped by a former client and held in a warehouse. In this cat-and-mouse back and forth, what seems like a man's simple plot for revenge becomes a far more nuanced deconstruction of a man's life that has caused pain to so many.

A young teacher moves across the country to Los Angeles for a restart. Never quite finding his place, he befriends a young boy on his commute to work. As he begins to piece back together his life, the realities of the young boy's life begin to unravel. 

A family tries to come to terms with the death of the father. In trying to move on the daughters discover a secret that their father had long kept from the family. Traveling across the North-east USA to meet the others implicated in their father's secret, they try to reconcile how someone that was loved so deeply could have kept a secret from them for so long.
