Fifteen New Yorkers go into a Friday night unaware of the fact that their lives are about to change. Larry, an A&R executive, has been sublimating his deep fear of getting older by carrying on an affair with his young assistant, Emily, unbeknownst to his stunning model girlfriend, Mia. Abby, a sensitive college student, worships her older boyfriend Marc, while thinking her friend Clarice is only a child. Michelle is looking forward to meeting Jack, with whom she's flirted on-line but has never met in person. Wendy is sure she needs a change in her life, but she's not sure what it should be. And Greg, a charming but nervous actor, finally gets to go out with Angelina, the object of a long-standing crush. As the night unfolds, the characters all convene at the same music venue, and their lives intersect. By the morning, their lives have changed -- some subtly, some dramatically, but all irreversibly.

For a very low budget independent film, this is a solid look at one night in the lives of a dozen or more New Yorkers. It is a series of vignettes in which a myriad of individuals are presented and all will at some point be at a live music performance in a bar. Each are snapshots of relationships points either romantically or friendships.
Melissa Leo is the biggest name in the cast and once again gives full commitment to the role. There are a lot of unknown faces and yet all put in fairly solid performances. There are probably too many characters on the canvas and some work better than others, yet at least one will keep your attention until the end.
