From the seedy underbelly near the East River of Manhattan
to a posh, Lenox Hill apartment to the iconic South Street Seaport comes
It’s all about a shy, nerdy science major
who finally gets the nerve to help his crush,
and finds himself embroiled in murder and international intrigue.
It’s After Hours meets Rope.
