A teenage boy runs away from a small Alabama town to Manhattan in order to live out his dad's rock 'n' roll dreams - and then he discovers a few of his own. Along the way he discovers that, while the seedy underbelly of the city that he sought has been whitewashed, and paved over, the true rock 'n' roll spirt that made NYC great, lives on in the quirky characters that he meets, and in their struggles to survive in a town that is constantly trying to throw them out. MADHATTAN is a tribute to the city that never sleeps, and to all who keep her awake.
