It features a young couple who move in to a Duplex in Brooklyn, where an old [[CoolOldLady tenant]] is giving them hell.
The tenant sends both of the couple on a myriad of errands, keeps them up all night (every night), gets them fired from their jobs, and lowers the value of the property with each passing day.
