The Kindness of Strangers
Young mother Clara heads to New York City with her two sons in order to escape her abusive cop husband. When her car is impounded, Clara and her family must face the realities of life on the street. Elsewhere in the city, lonely ex-con Marc is looking to rehabilitate his life running a Russian restaurant for eccentric proprietor, Timofey. Alice, a kindly ER nurse, and Jeff, a young man struggling to find somewhere to belong, prove to be Clara’s unlikely guardians by providing refuge for her and the children at Timofey’s restaurant.
