What begins as a story about a girly James Dean with two wicked sisters and a drunk mother becomes a story about a CPW apartment building and its history, its doorman, its neighbors.
Tina Finn is outrageous and outraged, at everyone with a bank account or a stable identity, at her sister with the crackberry, at her other sister with the perfect husband, at grown ups. But in a Jacuzzi surrounded by gay men she becomes another Doris Day …. relaxed, bubbly, verbal. The twelve room apartment gathers around itself a seraglio of children, thieves and lovers, and delivers an ending both righteous and happy.
