A down on her luck, 27 year old quiet Kiki, gets fired from her job one night and loses her key on her way home, downtown Manhattan. Dumped by her boyfriend and locked out, Kiki starts out by asking a neighbor to use a phone to call a locksmith. Her encounters with the tenants of the building take her deeper into an undiscovered, strangely delirious world that she has ignored up until now. Her urban odyssey forces her to meet with an old jazz singer with a very questionable past - a demented artist and a superintendent with a dark secret. Kiki's encounters tint her along the way, taking in the inevitable New York lunacy that we all know surrounds us.
