    Charlie (Dan Futterman) is a tormented young gay man who has recently become romantically unattached. Unable to reconcile himself to the loss of his long term companion, Charlie decides to live on the edge. One night, as he aimlessly wanders the streets of downtown Manhattan, he locks gaze with a mysterious stranger. This chance encounter marks the beginning of a nightmarish quest as he haunts the city nightly in an increasingly desperate attempt to find him. Charlie meets a host of bizarre characters on his journey, each of whom recounts an urban myth.

    Charlie finds his borders of reality quickly shifting - the lines separating past and present, truth and illusion, hate and healing, gay and straight have been blurred. As a result, the urban myths that are imparted - the man with the stolen kidney, the poodle in the microwave - as well as his own visions fuse to create a new reality round him. Disturbed and dejected, Charlie decides to punish those people responsible for his misery. Urbania is a provocative, sexually charged noir that probes the powerful and transcendant nature of love.
