A lonely adoptee in Japan, a donut-addicted IRS agent, haiku-spouting reclusive guru, and two blood cousins from North Philly’s barrio. This motley crew gathers in an internet chatroom to share life's fragile successes and help weather its bleak realities. Through the tenuous connections of their long-distance bonds, these unlikely companions come together in a portrait of American urban life that is dazzling to witness.
