Synopsis:
A young Polish girl is faced with having to kill a beautiful fish for dinner in Fish Food. A demanding customer’s request for A Perfect Manhattan brings a bartender to the breaking point. Manbird is a poetic ode to the folkloric “pigeon man” of Chicago’s Lincoln Square. A badass female bike messenger runs roughshod over everyone in her path in Faster! Three is definitely a crowd in Commencement. In Son of None, Joshua, a seven-year-old Liberian war orphan, must realize where his true priorities lie. Two blocked screenwriters find inspiration in the sound of a typewriter from an adjoining office in Typing. Surreal encounters on a long drive across Iowa help a man come to terms with his feelings of guilt in Refuge.
