Newlyweds Paul and Corie Bratter begin their new life together in an unfinished Manhattan apartment. Paul’s a straight-laced lawyer and Corie a romantic free-spirit. When Corie’s mother visits, they introduce her to eccentric neighbour-in-the-attic Velasco. A wild night ensues, one that highlights just how different Corie and Paul are. The young couple soon realise that marriage is no easy walk in the park.
