Leviticus 19:34 reveals a city through the musings, interactions and explorations of a stranger. Friendly, open and getting by, this man’s character and limited insight into his life demonstrates the nuances and expanses of a person one misses without knowing them. Hopes of reuniting with the daughter he’s never met, thoughts on a Jewish neighbourhood and final words to a chicken he carries home for a meal bring the audience into his world and perspective. Without knowing much about him, this man’s strolls through the streets, scams on internet dating sites and chats with strangers in the park form a complex picture of the city.
