Remember when it was 1999 and everyone thought the world was going to end?

Ark comically chronicles the lives of nine strangers living at the end of the millennium. Initially, the only apparent link the characters share is their daily ritual of riding the bus. However, as their lives begin to tangle, these public encounters impact the characters in hilarious and unforeseeable ways. Minnie is an outspoken, neglected nine-year old. Nick is a tough thirteen-year old boy who dreams of being on the radio. Myrtle is a seventy- year old miserly woman who keeps her savings in a piggy bank. Jake is a softhearted joker obsessed with explosions and his ex-girlfriend. Dan is a factory worker who yearns for his glory days when he was a Disco DJ. Janice is a shy, lonely telemarketer. Marty is a pregnant, disillusioned cocktail waitress. The characters take turns calling Dr. Dina, a god-like radio psychiatrist. Although the characters range in age and ethnicity, each one is an outcast in his or her own way. Ark tells the story of what it means to be lonely, poor, a child, old, or ordinary in the city at a time where everyone is searching for faith.
