Recent financial struggles have forced Max and Monica to move in with another couple, Ray and Deb, in their Brooklyn apartment. After the outcome of the 2016 Presidential Election is revealed, initial sightings of bed bugs appear in their apartment. With little help from their landlord Meir, Ray and Deb flee to Deb’s parent’s house, while Max and Monica stay to try to rid the apartment of the unwelcomed pestilence. As their living nightmare continues and truly affected by the political climate, Max and Monica’s desperation leads them down a dark path of vengeance and intimidation. Little do they know, the very people they’re fighting against are stymied by persecution in their own community.
How can we ever hope to rid the world of pests when we’re fighting amongst ourselves?
