Evil (typical) New York landlord “Killer” Joe is plotting against the tenants of his building. He’s already gotten rid of one, and another has passed under suspicious circumstances. Lorna Breedlove, a septuagenarian sex addict in recovery and den mother of the building, will not be moved. The rest of the tenants will follow her lead: Thomas the Log Cabin accountant, middle-aged stoner JP, and repentant retiring priest Father Benedict to name a few.
All is happening in a race with the new subway line, bringing more change and more people to the turbulent surroundings. Killer Joe enlists sadistic lawyer (redundant) Roveena, a praying mantis breaking the very laws she swore to uphold. So Joe takes matters into his own hands without noting the danger of one’s own petard.
The tenants battle through the red tape of City government and a slightly corrupt legal system, but as all true New Yorkers will explain: “Leave Manhattan? Not on your life!”
