A Brooklyn cigar store anchors the vignettes that make up this lyrical Wayne Wang movie written by famous author Paul Auster. Auggie (Harvey Keitel), the store manager, is surprised by a visit from his ex-wife, who says their daughter is in trouble. Rashid (Harold Perrineau Jr.), a runaway searching for his father (Forest Whittaker), saves Auggie's customer, Paul (William Hurt), from being hit by a car, and changes his life forever.

With a cigar box of subplots, this episodic yarn is more numbing than boring, though its increasingly compelling narrative has the ill-timed misfortune to collapse completely in its final talky segment.
