Bushwick is at a cultural, artistic, and geographical crossroads. 'Bushwick Beats' examines the vibrant neighborhood as it goes through this unique period of transition and evolution. An anthology of six stories ranging from a single mother and her son struggling to accept the limitations of her ALS to couple trying to reconcile their relationship which spans time instead of distance, each chapter is a different director's interpretation of unconditional love, all set in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
