    • Synopsis
    • Recently promoted to associate editor at a prestigious photography magazine, Syd (Radha Mitchell) lives in a drab New York City apartment with her boyfriend, James (Gabriel Mann). A ceiling leak leads her to the upstairs apartment of Lucy (Ally Sheedy), a once-renowned photographer who dropped out of the art scene, now living with her heroin-addicted German lover, Greta (Patricia Clarkson), and hosting a regular circle of drug-addicted friends. Syd lures Lucy out of retirement for a magazine piece, but their relationship becomes more intimate, blurring the line between Syd’s professional ambition and personal feelings.
