Set in a post-9/11 New York City, several emotionally-challenged characters navigate the comic and tragic intersections between love and sex in and around a modern-day underground salon.

A sex therapist who has never had an orgasm, a dominatrix who is unable to connect, a gay couple who are deciding whether to open up their relationship, and the people who weave in and out of their lives, all converge on a weekly gathering called Shortbus -- a mad nexus of art, music, politics and polysexual carnality.
