Synopsis: On the brink of demise, self-destructive Richie has sadly reached the lowest point in his life, and now, he desperately wants out. However, nothing is over yet, as an unexpected call from Richie's estranged sister, Maggie, will offer a helping hand, and perhaps, a new meaning in life, even though it is only a fleeting one. Strange as it may seem, although Richie is the last person she would ever call, Maggie, distraught, still needs his help to look after her young daughter, Sophia, for the night. Little by little, as the two alienated relatives timidly reconnect under New York's silvery night lights, a subtle and delicate relationship will form. Could it be the beginning of a new reality?
