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-estate enterprise.
Each character quickly realizes that their immediate need or desire pales in significance compared to the tragedy building around them. 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.
