An exploration into the lives of several characters living in New York City as they navigate the comic and tragic intersections between love and sex. Male and female, straight and gay, they find one another -- and eventually themselves -- when they all converge at a weekly underground salon called "Shortbus," a mad collision of art, music, politics, and carnality.
