A documentary essay about a condition of a man in the western civilization in the 21st century told by 21 people met in New York subway. People look for love, but have no strength for it. Interpersonal bonds wither and break in the mixture of social media. Sex is mistaken for closeness. This multi-layered symphony of longing for emotions, need to communicate and all-embracing loneliness is also a mirror, in which we can see ourselves if only we have the courage.
