A woman heads with anticipation to a first date at a popular Uptown Minneapolis restaurant, only to ultimately be stood up. She leaves the restaurant and roams the streets of a neighborhood once a thriving home to musicians and artists that is now primarily a playground for young bourgeois suburban drunks. Street musicians perform on the sidewalk to ambivalent passersby, standing on the former site of the legendary Uptown Bar – the venue that launched the Replacements and Hüsker Dü – which is now an upscale computer retailer. This is a film about alienation, change, loneliness and disconnection between people, environments and time.
Created for Cinema Revolution Society's Minneapolis Project 2010 and screened at the Riverview Theater in Minneapolis.
