Philadelphia is one of the characters in Boxes. The city and its residents are boxed in and struggle with the cultural and economic forces that bring angst and thwart progress. Philly is unable to live up to its full potential because of blatant and hidden social issues that continue to fester at its core. As such, it's a poster child for much of American society. My hope is that Philly, like many of the characters in Boxes, will break out of its box into new beginnings.
