SETTING UP THE SCENE:
April Burns (Katie Holmes) lives in a tiny tenement apartment in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Hoping to re-connect with her estranged family, she invites them to join her for a Thanksgiving dinner. As they make the long trek from Pennsylvania (and reveal their own feelings about her), April discovers that her stove is broken and begins knocking on the doors of her (ethnically diverse) neighbors.
