Plot Summary
Barely employed Manhattanite Joe (David Krumholtz) agrees to a green-card marriage to Frenchwoman Annabelle (Clara Bellar). The newlyweds struggle to find an apartment on his meager salary, and settle on a unit in a shabby tenement building on a block where Joe's deceased grandparents once lived. Trouble begins when the neighbors name Joe head of the tenants association -- and promptly recruit him to escort wild-eyed Nuyorican prizefighter Carlos DeJesus (Paul Calderon) from the premises.
