It's just another day in the city, yet for a handful of people, it could be their last. This film powerfully weaves together the stories of its desperate characters and depicts the dangerous hours they face during one fateful day. Cinque (played by director Cinque Lee) escapes from a psychiatric hospital, wanting to spend the day with a son he hasn't seen in many years. His ex-wife fears the worst and frantically searches for the missing child. At once brutally realistic and deeply moving, Nowhere Fast features an outstanding ensemble cast, gritty street-wise cinematography and the gripping performance of its director and star.
