"21 x New York” is an intimate portrait of the city and its people.

We meet the characters in the NYC subway and we follow them to the surface finding out about their lives, cravings, passions, hopes and dreams – sometimes lost and sometimes still waiting to be fulfilled. What comes out of it is an emotional tale of solitude that haunts us in 21st century western world.
