Alvin has had it. He sees civilization crumbling around him and wants no part of it. The only place he feels safe is inside his Chicago high rise apartment, so that's where he stays until Karen moves in next door. She is a die hard optimist with a high pressure job and a relentless ex boyfriend who won't take no for an answer. Alvin and Karen meet on their adjoining balconies and form a friendship that sets their two worlds on a collision course.
