Storyline

Philosophy professor Walter Zarrow is wounded during a mugging. In an effort to escape he rings buzzers indiscriminately, waking Sam, a middle aged father of two having an affair in the city. Sam reluctantly answers Zarrow's pleas, and Zarrow loses consciousness in his arms. Through an exploration of why these men, along with the mugger, and an addict named Joe, come together, we explore New York City. The experience of Zarrow, Sam, Joe and Zarrow's assailant ripple quickly out to include the connected lives of a housewife struggling with alcoholism, a stoner teen desperate to lose his virginity, a brilliant but failed writer fighting addiction, two parents confronting the prospect of terminal illness, and a brilliant grad student who wounds herself to feel alive.

Many lives converge during a tragic moment. Works as well as Crash did. I really enjoyed this and recommend. I give this a B+
17 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

"You can't see you're in charge of yourself." The lives of many people and families all intersect after the attack on popular professor Walter Zarrow (Waterston). A husband and wife in marriage trouble, a wife with health issues, a young woman with mental problems and two old friends on opposite ends of the law all have an impact on each other without realizing it. I really enjoy movies like this. Movies where seemingly individual stories all converge at the end. Movies like Crash, 11:14 and recently She's Funny That Way have all used this mechanic with success. This one adds to that. The movie starts off a little slow but really grows on you and by the end you really don't want it to end. The only downside is the movie is a little too predictable, but it does have enough curves to keep you surprised though. The acting is very good in this and this is a sleeper movie that should be seen by more people than it will. Overall, a movie to watch for the acting and the story, not for everyone but those that like it will really like it. I did. I give this a B+.
