Victor, a twelve year-old boy growing up on New York City's Lower East Side experiences what growing up is all about.


Tea and Sympathy on the Lower East Side An achingly clueless young man gets his first kiss from a slightly older slightly wiser girl. Young and inarticulate teens on NYC's lower east side struggle with those first stirrings of desire. They are almost entirely clueless but desperate to appear experienced and cool to each other. It's fascinating how their studied attitudes get in the way of the affection that they all so clearly need and want.
