Two unlikely strangers are brought together by a mysterious death, their connection sparks a chemistry too explosive to ignore. When Anna (Jessica Clarke) a serious-minded New York choreographer meets Pale (Mark Diaco) a hothead restaurant manager, this grief-stricken pair are drawn to each other despite their better insticts.
Set against the backdrop of lower Manhattan in the summer of 1983 New York, a morally bankrupt, crime ridden city of abandoned streets and dilapidated buildings with a raging drug and AIDS epidemic.
