SOMEWHERE IN THE CITY deftly threads the overlapping stories of six eccentric residents of a funky Lower Eastside building in New York City. These cramped apartments can barely contain the big dreams of their inhabitants: Betty (Bernhard) is a self-absorbed and self-appointed "food therapist," desperately seeking the right guy. Then there is Lu Lu (Bai Ling), a young Chinese exchange student looking for a green card marriage. There's also Marta (Muti), who endures the twice-daily caresses of the overweight super of the tenement-like apartments, but dreams of running away with Frankie (Robert John Burke), the dashing but incompetent crook who lives upstairs. Down the hall is poor Graham (Peter Stormare), the gifted Shakespearean actor who also dreams of finding Mr. Right and his big break while subsisting on demeaning commercial work.
