Marisa Orlando loves the apartment complex that became her home after she was forced to sell her house to pay for her mother's medical expenses. The neighbors in the building are family, each with their own stories and challenges. Though modest and rundown, the building is affordable and Marisa is very happy living there. When she learns that the building has been sold to a high-powered developer who plans on converting the units into condominiums, she is devastated. She knows that she, as well as most of her neighbors, will be unable to afford to buy their homes and they will be forced to move elsewhere.
