Crystal, a loving wife and mother, is the owner of a charming neighborhood bookstore in Brooklyn. Her eight year-old daughter, Corinne, enjoys spending midsummer afternoons playing in front of the store. But the tranquility of a beautiful day unravels when a teenage boy steals her bicycle. While Crystal's decision to call the police is seen as a betrayal by some of her neighbors, others choose to join the search. As events unfold, underlying tensions caused by economic disparities begin to surface. Will the search for a child's bicycle unite this fragile community or ignite a conflict that could blow it apart? Written by Anonymous

Delightful!!
20 September 2010 | by JenniferAnnJonesSee all my reviews

Attended a screening during the UrbanWorld Film Festival.

Impressed by the character development. Depth of dialogue in just 18 minutes is done with ease. There was a natural progression to each scene and nothing seemed out of place, no 'filler'.

The quality of visual was so impressive.

A thought provoking piece on issues surrounding gentrification. Allows the viewer to dislike the acts of the thief while feeling some sympathy.

Moments of comic relief are well placed and the involvement all different community members really brings the story to life.

Looking forward to more works by this promising Writer/Director.
