Project Synopsis
Five hundred thirteen thousand, seven hundred people will take the Skytrain today. Nine of those people are inextricably linked by Light Rapid Transit. Through a series of chance encounters, mid-life crises, one sided affections, and random acts of kindness or cruelty, we witness the all the ways human beings affect one another. Whether we know it or not.
