On the same day Tyler is fired from her dead-end job, she learns her estranged father, Octavio, has passed away. All her life, Tyler’s overbearing mother has lead her to believe her father wanted nothing to do with her, but after a strained meeting with Octavio’s lawyer, Tyler finds herself in possession of his decrepit and eccentric apartment—an apartment that both scares her and compels her to change her life.
