In the most desolate and abandoned area of the South Bronx, a young man and his mother search together and separately for hope amidst hopelessness and beauty amidst devastation.
The mother, stricken with cancer and medicated with street drugs, discovers peace and joy in the travels through the terrain of her imagination. At the same time, the son, his imagination unable to rise beyond the only environment he has ever known, pursues a frustrated search in the physical world. With limited philosophical and material resources, he pursues desperate means to secure their escape before succumbing to the physical and spiritual destitution that surrounds them.
The mother realizes she cannot make the journey necessary for her son's survival and asks him to sever her last physical tether to this world she has long since left behind. In an act of love and self sacrifice, he releases her before attempting his own escape.
