"One of the most striking elements of the project is its effortless diversity. At a time when our public discourse can make us feel separate and isolated from each other, this project stands as a breath of fresh air...literally a shot of much needed oxygen. The oxygen that comes from laughing together and falling in love together. Falling in love with characters who find their lives intertwined, not by class or race, but by shared passions, weaknesses, strengths and hopes. Lives forever woven together by these stolen moments." Director Elisabeth Nunziato
