  • Set: Minimalistic, slightly surreal subway car.

Trapped in an empty Manhattan subway car that's racing uptown, two women -- one an upper-middle-class New Yorker, and one an underclass, homeless New Yorker -- make contact. Their encounter is terrifying, electrifying, and shocking in this thought-provoking exploration of the class clash between a "have" and a "have-not."
