Apocalypse in NYC

A Danish artist takes on the quest for finding Sune Wagner in the American jungle, called New York.  Wagner has chosen to unite with the unknown and live out the American dream.  Our man has been sent out to retrieve Wagner and bring him back to the Danish civilization, yet again.  The journey through Harlem, Fifth Ave, and China Town is an encounter with the American culture, and a search for answers to how this city captured the Dane by the heart.  At the same time, it is a journey into a European soul that still is very much alive and breathing in NYC, and a reunion with ghosts from the past.  In the quest for Sune Wagner, our man meets other artists. The American on the streets of New York, and the Dane who has settled down in NY.  Through these encounters, the film debates cultural heritage, belongingness, and the myths and pre-assumptions we have about each other.
