SubUrbia chronicles the nighttime activities of a group of aimless 20-somethings still living in their suburban New Jersey hometown and their reunion with a former high school classmate, Pony, who has become a successful musician. Pony’s return strips away illusions and excuses to reveal the truth behind the empty, meaningless lives they all lead.
