A future fairytale about being seen. Gilbert Gonzalez (Adrian Martinez), feels isolated from the world. He is 39, a virgin, diabetic, and lives with his sarcastic, overprotective mother, who owns the upper Manhattan brownstone. Fearful of life and people, yet starving for human connection, Gilbert sublimates by taking photos of women, building a digital ‘connection’ to others. Jana, (Dascha Polanco), is Gilbert’s tenant– beautiful but haunted by her own insecurities that inhibit her from standing up to her ex-boyfriend Tony, (Raul Castillo), an Iraq war vet with PTSD. Three people reaching for true connection, becomes a dangerous love triangle in our increasingly digital and disconnected world.
