A tragedy of real-estate extortion in a world that is dreamy, absurd and hyperreal.
In an average apartment of a bustling city, fatal interests converge. ​An old man wants to live his last days in what peace he can find. ​ Burdened by her good heart, the old man’s part time, stand-in caregiver struggles with a way to survive and provide for her ​ far-away family. The landlord marches to the beat of progress and needs the old man gone from his apartment to steamroll forward with a promising real-e​state enterprise.

​Each character quickly realizes that their immediate need or desire pales in significance compared to the tragedy building around the​m. Instincts compete with circumstances to paint a bleak portrait of modern society. In a globalized world the catastrophes are as universal as they are personal and the plight of the old ​and the immigrant seems to be in the cruel hands of those with the bigger piles of gold.​
