Comedy

Sunset Park is a contemporary comedy/drama that takes place in Brooklyn, New York. The main character is Evelyn Horowitz, a widow in her seventies who lives by herself and is a part-time teacher. Her apartment building is going co-op, but she can't afford to buy in and cannot, by law, be asked to leave. When, her middle-aged children, Carol and Roger, hear about it, they realize that there's money to be made in the long run: a long-term tenant has to be offered the apartment at a below market-value price and, eventually, the place can be "flipped" for a sizable profit. And that's when the problems start – when money enters the picture, conflicts arise and old secrets come out.
