Community Plot
This satiric comedy takes place in a building on New York's multi-ethnic Lower East Side. Four neighbors form an uneasy alliance after a case worker from family court is accidentally killed in their building. The film captures the noisy chaos and cultural diversity of this poor community with a gutsy sense of humor. On note, it presents the hardships faced by battered women when they attempt to get help from the law enforcement bureaucracy.
