Lisa, a young Russian TmigrT new to New York, and Roy, an African American apartment manager, bond as they eke out a meager living on the city's Lower East Side, but their budding relationship is thwarted by economic realities and personal responsibilities. Set in the early 1990s, before gentrification, Black & White captures the gritty locale as well as the difficulties of escaping a fringe existence. The film is populated by an assortment of bohemian artists, disenfranchised immigrants, sexual surrogates, and working class stiffs, who respond to life on the edge of society in different ways. Through Lisa's attempts to connect with mainstream society for her shot at the American Dream, Russian director Boris Frumin paints the realities of the immigrant experience and 'the sad understanding of what it means to be a stranger' (Laurence Kardish, Sundance Film Festival).
