Two blind teens navigate life and love in the US Rust Belt

Mike and Joey, two teenagers who have been blind since infancy, spend their days aimlessly roaming between boarded-up grocery stores and abandoned factories in the Rust Belt city of Buffalo, New York. Although their lack of sight affects almost every aspect of their lives, from how they approach fistfights to what menial jobs they can land, they’re more interested in debating the fate of Tupac or Mike’s stormy relationship with his girlfriend than their disabilities.
