Widowed economics professor Walter Vale returns to Manhattan to discover that illegal immigrants Tarek and Zainab have taken up residence in his apartment, the apparent victims of a property renting scam. Taking pity on the young couple, Walter allows them to stay, forging a tender bond of friendship with the outsiders.
