This charts the destruction of Williamsburg - a neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY - after the city passed a re-zoning plan in 2005 which allowed developers to build luxury condos where there were once thriving industries, working-class families, and artists. The filmmaker lived in the neighborhood for 20 years and was one of the many who were forced out by the changes that occurred.

“I wanted the film to feel uncanny, meaning simultaneously familiar and strange. The combination of these mixed signals makes us quite uncomfortable.”
