H.O.M.E. is a meditation on urban communication that weaves two stories together, both inspired by a true events in New York City. Part 1 is a lyrical tone poem concerning a missing young man with Asperger's Syndrome who wanders through the labyrinth-like subways, somehow unnoticed. Part 2 follows a gambling Ecuadorian livery driver who offers a ride to a stranded Chinese woman desperate to get home to her sick child. H.O.M.E. explores alienation & meaningful encounters through the lens of a "disconnected" city in constant motion.
