Additional Info

Newlyweds Sarah and Stanley have just moved into their new apartment, but Stanley sent the furniture to the wrong address and leaves to go fishing and bowling with his best friend Hovig. Sarah is afraid to ask Stanley where and why he is coming and going as the food and money runs out. A visit from her chatty upstairs neighbor Mary finds Sarah a willing student to Mary's secrets on how to be a good wife. "Me and Joe, we're nice, quiet neighbors", she informs Sarah, except when they make the "happy noise." Things take a turn when Hovig awkwardly returns from the fishing trip with food and pillows for Sarah's upside down table bed, but without Stanley. As the "happy noise" emanates from above, things aren't what they seem to be, and we finally meet Joe from upstairs and learn of his passions, which include hunting and Old Grand Dad.
