Synopsis

A comedic urban fantasy which graphs the foibles of a young Manhattan resident, Donna, who's under seige in her own neighborhood. Laid off from her museum job, harassed by her love-obsessed landlord, and simply uninspired to leave her own apartment, Donna's already complex life takes a turn for the worst when she inadvertently witnesses a murder. She then begins to doubt her own sanity as she encounters prophetic street poets, dysfunctional would-be boyfriends, and love-deranged friends.
