Jorie - a woman caught between the world of her past and the one she has made for herself - lives a modern Grimm adaptation in New York City today. Entranced and charmed by Gus, a homeless man who uses his own magic to seduce her, Jorie is taken on a dark ride into the city’s underbelly that is triggered when she gives Gus her lover, James’s, coat. A balance of the deux ex machina qualities of fairytale magic with the hardbased realities of the lives of the homeless man, the prostitute, the stockbroker in a post 9/11 world.
