The landscape of the city never leaves your camera and it's a constant reminder that anything is possible at any given frame.    The Story Millions of stories in New York city and Placebo Heart embodies just that. The story of Merrick Gates is told through a concrete mosaic, that is inhabited by a kaleidoscope of the tortured souls that have crossed Merrick's path.  Placebo Heart is an urban odyssey told through a cinematic experience with characters that are as emotionally complex and soulful as the city they inhabit.   The Team Rodney Ferrer (Writer/Director) Rodney is the Director, Writer and Creator of CITY OF MERCY.
