With an unflinching eye, Triburbia explores Tribeca, Manhattan, where an artists' community has been overrun by those made staggeringly wealthy by the world of finance.
A group of fathers - a sound engineer, a writer, a career criminal - meet each morning at a local cafe after the school run.
Over the course of a single year, we learn about their dreams deferred, their secrets and mishaps, as they confront truths about ambition, wealth and sex. Seen through the eyes of these men and the women with whom they share their lives, Triburbia shows that our choices and their repercussions not only define us, but irrevocably alter the lives of those we love.
Wonderfully layered and complex, Triburbia creates a powerful portrait of a group of unlikely friends and a neighbourhood in transition.
