In the urban world, the ebb and flow of people, love, and money changes from block to block. In the flash of a camera or a sip of coffee, lives are greatly affected by the decisions of people around us. This series of short films captures these moments in flux as seen through the eyes of city dwellers crossing paths morning, noon, and night.
