Gritty urban legends and harsh realities unfold in this adaptation of Daniel Reitz's acclaimed play "Urban Folk Tales." In a dream-like state, the grieving Charlie (Dan Futterman) spends a lonely night in New York City on the heels of a brooding stranger (Samuel Ball). A series of bizarre events and urban myths, including a poodle found dead in a microwave, leads to a climactic showdown where Charlie finds the redemption he's been seeking.
