“Tales Of The City” – Part 1

In the middle of the hippest city in America, residents of Barbary Lane in San Francisco are living the hi-ife to the fullest. Here you’ll find bohemian life at it’s best: men, woman, lovers, strangers, gay and straight, always there for each other with a quick laugh or some good ( but not always leagal) advice. Besides the delicious nights and horrific mornings-after, they all face suicidal millionairs, the threat of marriage, and notorious not-yet-exposed killers! Mary Anne Singleton has just left her smalltown life behind and decided to make it in the big city, SF, Ca. The only person she knows is Connie Bradshaw (Parker Posey) who also grew up in Cleavland, and there isn’t much that Connie would “rule out”.
