A family's peaceful life is disrupted when a brother marries and moves his new wife and her three children into his rental home. The brother's 18-year-old daughter, who lives in a finished basement with its own living quarters and separate entrance, finds herself at the center of a heated conflict when her stepmom tries to take her room for her own 22-year-old son. The situation escalates, and the landlord, who is also the girl's uncle, steps in to resolve the issue. But did he go too far?
