Only in New York is the line between winner and loser less clear, more alive. Who is a winner? What defines a loser? Two unlikely individuals, Kimberle and Kevin, could be viewed as losers in the eyes of some. For the director they are her heroes. Kimberle is an aspiring rockstar from the Bible Belt who has come to live the New York experience. She is constantly searching, pushing, relentless in her energy to 'make it' and remain true to herself. Kevin is a recluse. An autodidact beginning college at age 40, he spends the bulk of his time reading and writing in search of answers to questions both romantic and philosophical. It is a reportage diary. It tells a common story within an uncommon collage of images and emotions. It challenges the superficial judgments we place on each other and ourselves, reexamines the American dream, and asks: Why is it so hard to live up to one's own expectations?
