A hidden enclave in the shadow of the New York Mets' new stadium, the neighborhood of Willets Point is an industrial zone fated for demolition. Filled with scrap yards and auto salvage shops, lacking sidewalks or sewage lines, the area seems ripe for urban development. But a strange community exists where wrecks, refuse and recycling form a thriving commerce. Joe, the last resident of the junkyard, rages and rallies through the street trying to contest his imminent eviction. Two lovers, Sara and Luis, struggle for food and safety through the winter while living in an abandoned van. Julia, the homeless queen of Willets Point, exalts in her beatific visions of daily life among the forgotten. The struggle of soon to be gentrified neighborhood before its disappearance is intimately and touchingly observed and captured. [adult content, language]

From a young age, Steve McGreevy was fascinated by the natural world and by amateur radio. When he discovered that nature produced its own radio signals, he began a quest to capture these sounds - a quest that has taken him to the most remote parts of the continent. Sometimes called the "Music of the Planet," this otherworldly soundscape surrounds us all the time but is not audible to the human ear. This film explores this radio pioneer's motivations and takes the viewer on a sonic journey into this hidden world of capturing these mesmerizing sounds.
