Cities hold a fascination because they are implicitly about promise. They offer the key to our ambitions, hopes and dreams. But cities also have a secret underbelly of loneliness, alienation and failed dreams. Somewhere between this euphoria of possibilities and soured dreams lie the stories of how people survive or don’t survive these spaces. Using four very different cities that represent diverse geographies this documentary series brings together a collection of intimate stories, experiences and reflections of how cities on the one hand exude a particular image and promise and, on the other hand harbor a more mysterious side that is revealed after a slow, long-term relationship.
