Roger is the last remaining tenant of an old apartment building scheduled for demolition to make way for a new shopping mall. At 75 and with a history of left-wing social activism, Roger has no intention of giving the corporate interests the satisfaction of moving without a fight – his last stand. A young attorney, Annie, shows up charged with the task of evicting Roger. What should be easy for Annie becomes a test of wills and integrity, which uncovers both of their fears and their gaping generational divide. But this battle also shows them their ability to to transcend their differences and ultimately what binds even the most intransigent pair of combatants.
