5 Flights Up

A coming of age story


5 Flights Up
Forty years ago, an artist bought a run-down apartment in a sketchy part of Brooklyn with his schoolteacher wife. Today, their neighbourhood is now very hip and their apartment worth a small fortune. Now retired, they haven't changed. They are still as much in love as ever. But they have let their niece, a real estate agent, list their property to see what the market might bear. On the eve of their open house, the Brooklyn Bridge is rumoured to be under a terrorist attack, sending the media into a frenzy and affecting people's attitudes about living in New York.
