PG-13 | | Drama
A college professor travels to New York City to attend a conference and finds a young couple living in his apartment.
The parking lot in which Walter parks his car after arriving in New York - on East 11th Street between 1st and 2nd Avenue - was torn down shortly after the film was released.
This feels like Syria.
When Walter gets his first djembe lesson, Tarek explains that all Western music is in 4/4 time (which is not true). He then says djembe music is in 3/4 time (also not true), and he proceeds to teach Walter his first rhythm, in syncopated 4/4 time.
