Description: Dr. Trabulous is an orthodox psychologist who utilizes his unique insights to unearth the buried rage of an ordinary man who has witnessed an office tragedy. Emme Keeler, the ruthless proprietor of The Great New Wonderful--a leading purveyor of pastries to the New York society set--struggles to unseat NY's reigning Queen of Cake, to great success and profound consequences. Allison and David Burbage struggle to keep their marriage together, while they cope with their increasingly difficult and strangely self-possessed 10-year-old son. Avi and Satish--immigrants, best friends and security guards--travel around the city casually observing contemporary America until dramatic events force them to reevaluate their opposing perspectives. Judy Berman's routine is upset when she reconnects with a childhood friend whose passion for life kindles unexpected desires of her own. One year after 9/11, these stories reveal that being lost always precedes a new beginning.
