Starring Sandra Bernhard (Without You I'm Nothing, The King of Comedy), Peter Stormare (Fargo, Armageddon), Bai Ling (Wild Wild West, Red Corner), Robert John Burke (From the Earth to the Moon, Simple Men) and Ornella Muti (Oscar, Swann in Love),this hilarious underground comedy deftly threads the overlapping stories of six eccentric but lovable residents of a New York City tenement apartment building.

A splendid cast brings humor and spirit to their roles, which include a self-obsessed therapist, a Chinese exchange student, an incompetent crook, and a brilliant, gay Shakespearean actor. All have hopes and dreams, and most are looking for love-but settling for sex. Featuring an original score by Velvet Underground co-founder John Cale, songs by Yoko Ono, Ani DiFranco, Sandra Bernhard and others.
