They relay a story to their friends and acquaintances that over time becomes legendary.It is their encounter with a young black man who they had never met or heard of but who comes stumbling upon their front door one evening as they are courting an important investor, Geoffrey Miller, who could make them wealthy beyond what they could have dreamed.
The suspect they ultimately uncover is a sociopath that no one saw coming.
Since our airwaves are filled with crap like American Idol and Dancing with the Stars, it was nice to see a drama that was not too soap opera like.
It was always intriguing to see how each character would be connected to the next circumstance.
A mysterious web of coincidences will gradually draw them closer, changing the course of their lives forever. Move on to Steven, the artist/photographer who believes he's lost his "eye." Follow with Damian, who can't escape his criminal brother's shadow, then on to Mae, the girl with a dangerous past that she's hiding from, and finally to Carlos, the good guy ... Even Jonathan Cake the philandering boyfriend was likable.
They say that anyone on the planet can be connected to any other person through a chain of six people, which means that no one is a stranger... In this new drama from the producers of "Lost" and "Alias," six very different New Yorkers go about their lives without realizing the impact they're having on one another - yet. Is there a greater force at work in our world, guiding us along and connecting our lives? Next is Whitney, the self-made success story who thinks her boyfriend is cheating. Guare's play and screenplay are heavily responsible for introducing to the pop culture at large the notion that everyone in the world is separated by only six other people (also known as the "Milgram Small World phenomenon, after the social psychologist Stanley Milgram, who conducted acquaintance path experiments). It was intricate and well written and all the characters where likable with out being horribly sweet.
