After being struck by a bicycle while crossing an East Village intersection, Vera Resnick (Emily Kron) feels a strange and out-of-character connection to the college-aged kid (Liam Yates) responsible for the collision. Is this mysterious connection real? Is it a coincidence that brought Vera and the biker together? Or, are larger forces at play?
