Under the watchful eye of an omniscient cockroach, New York is Bleeding follows the lives of seven New Yorkers — a black maid, an Irish seamstress and her unemployed son, a black longshoreman, a wealthy white manufacturer and his two children — as New York City erupts into the worst riot in American history after Abraham Lincoln signs the first conscription act. Based on actual events.
