Grace charts the lives of six remarkable people in one day–a day when each one’s life is inexorably changed. As their paths intersect, these strangers affect and transform one another in astonishing, often hilarious ways. A heart-wrenching yet life-affirming exploration of fate and attraction, investigating what it means to achieve the grace of meaningful, if fleeting, human connection in the city.
