In the midst of rampant urban development, a group of privileged post-grads living in Brooklyn must put their petty squabbles on hold when they realize they they no longer live alone—they’re unknowingly sharing their apartment with an immigrant Latino family. A radical reenvisioning of Julio Cortazar's Casa Tomada for the Bloomberg era.
