When Princeton, a young college graduate, embarks upon his first New York adventure, he soon learns life is not like Sesame Street where he was told he was special and could achieve anything. Indeed he is no more special than anyone else! In his shabby apartment building, Princeton meets a colorful array of characters the help define his purpose in life. And...did we mention...PUPPETS?
