Description

Ranko and Shuhei both arrived in New York City at the same time; one is a hairdresser, the other, a jazz singer. Three years later, Shuhei tells Ranko he is leaving New York and returning to Japan to make a better living, leaving Ranko to reflect on their relationship and say goodbye to the once passionate dream of “making it” in the big city. A VAFF Best Canadian Short Award nominee.

    Whose neighbourhood is it, anyway?
