New York has a reputation for being a surprising city. But you won't believe the surprises that rock it's foundations daily, and the adventures that await those who venture into it's serpentine subway system. Subway Stories is ten movies in one, capturing the laughter, the fear, the sexiness, the strangeness, the money - and the lack of it - that every day shapes the lives of those who ride the subways of New York. From the young Wall Streeter who could make it rich to the con artist with a paper cup; from a love affair without words to a chance meeting where music is the only language; from being in the right place at the right time to the wrong place at the wrong time - it's a ride you'll never forget! Each story is helmed by a different acclaimed director, including Bob Balaban, Jonathan Demme and Ted Demme.
