Is it worth it to pull someone closer . . . only to say goodbye?
Goodbye New York is a contemporary love story set in New York City, where we explore the inner channels of the human heart, celebrate the joy of being alive, and discover the courage to make life’s most difficult choices. Held aloft by a sweeping romantic score, it is a tale of two improbable lovers, and the city that brought them together. Unfolding over a mere 24 hours, Goodbye New York makes us wonder if it is worth it to pull someone closer . . . only to say goodbye?
