Urbania is a tale of urban myths and one man’s manic search for passion and redemption. Charlie (Dan Futterman) attempts to rebuild his life after the loss of his long-term lover. One night, out in the dark city streets he sees a mysterious stranger and becomes obsessed with him. This fascination triggers a decline into a raw, crazed existence on the very edges of reality. Charlie’s world becomes populated with a cast of oddball characters, each of whom recounts an urban myth. Complex and provocative, Urbania is a dark and moody noir with attitude, and like nothing you’ve ever seen before.
