Rose Phipps (Heather Graham) is an optometrist and recent divorcee mourning her infant's untimely death.  She has isolated herself from society, including her closest friends and family.  When an elderly painter slowly succumbing to blindness visits her lab, she encourages him to reach out to others before it is too late.

Later Rose spots an amateur photographer named Simon (Victor Rasuk) taking her picture from a distance.  She befriends him, and finds yet another loner who has rejected society after a series of hardships.  Together, all three characters will learn to break out of their shells.  

Adrift in Manhattan was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival.
