Camilla is facing thirty jobless and homeless. Still playing the role of a fast-track Manhattan executive, she hides her desperation behind a cool air and steel polish. At a downtown party she runs into Amory, a fledgling writer whose work she rejected a year earlier. She doesnt remember Amo but needs his help and over the next 24 hours he takes her on a sleepless journey through a restless city. From downtown demimonde to uptown refinement, sharing the failures and frustrations that have defined them, their night of discovery becomes a day of reckoning when tragedy intervenes.
