GRAND CONCOURSE tells the story of Shelley, the manager of a Bronx soup kitchen now struggling to find meaning in her work. With the help of Oscar, a security guard, Shelley tends to her flock, a colorful crew that includes Frog, a homeless former intellectual.  The arrival of Emma, a college dropout looking for a sense of purpose, is at first a welcome addition, but the young woman's erratic behavior soon impacts everyone. With gentle humor and great heart, GRAND CONCOURSE is a compelling and compassionate drama that sheds light on our shared humanity.
