Kids meets Midnight cowboy.
A love story between two drifters, a naive teenager and a hustler. The film captures a runaway journey
to New York City. Ekaj meets Mecca who takes him under his care. Mecca has AIDS and multiple
problems of his own. He is high all day but still manages to be the only voice of reason in Ekajs hopeless
world. They cruise the city together looking for money and places to stay. The core of the movie is Ekaj,
who thinks he will become the lover of a rich man and be taken care of for life but ends up finding his
dreams quickly shattered. Although he makes some money as a prostitute, he finds he is disposable,
replaceable and lacking what it takes to survive in the city. Their mutual loneliness leads to genuine
friendship."
