Product Description:

A story of a childless, middle-aged couple whose crumbling marriage and daily struggle with the stresses of city life has them trapped in a hell they're too depleted to leave.

Plot Synopsis:

Sophie, a freelance book translator, and Otto, a lawyer, are a childless bourgeois couple living in Brooklyn. They are locked in a disintegrating marriage and suffering a mid-life crisis. Their personal ennui and confusion are heightened by contact with people equally bored and empty, and the intruding difficulties of city life, including crime, vandalism, grim subways, and the constant wail of sirens signaling danger at all times.
