Summary Tells the interconnected stories of a group of racially diverse New Yorkers who rub elbows at Raskin's, a venerable Brooklyn diner and New York City institution whose Jewish owner has just revealed his plans to sell the place off to make way for condominiums and newer, more "gentrified" establishments. Told over the course of a single workday, the story challenges conventional assumptions about class and racial identity. If you think you know everyday people by how they look ... you better think again.
