Plot Synopsis:

In TWO FAMILY HOUSE, Buddy Visalo (Michael Rispoli) has a master plan: he'll buy a duplex, live on the top floor with his wife, Estelle (Katherine Narducci), and turn the ground floor into a popular jazz club. The only problem is, the house that Buddy buys already has occupants, and one of them is a pregnant young Irish woman whose abusive husband gives her little support. The two families must learn to live together and support each other, despite their differences and unrealized dreams.
