Neighborhood - Connection, Gentrification, Resilience, Metamorphosis

In the pulsating heart of Bushwick, a neighborhood under the relentless siege of gentrification, we encounter three compelling strangers, each navigating their distinct paths. There's a pigeon keeper whose solitude is his fortress, a webcam model asserting her identity in the digital realm, and a man whose existence is persistently shadowed by unseen ghosts. Their stories, disparate yet connected, intertwine subtly within this urban labyrinth. As Bushwick transforms, their lives resonate within its changing heartbeat, revealing an intricate narrative of resilience, identity, and unspoken connection in the face of societal metamorphosis.
