The elderly Orthodox Jewish twin brothers Abraham and Shraga’s family home in Brooklyn has not been cleaned since their parents passed away. They also have stopped throwing away anything, hosting stray cats and accumulating all sorts of objects. When the tenant in the upstairs apartment stops paying rent because of the problems with rubbish and vermin, Abraham and Shraga have no choice but to open their doors to a professional company. In seven chapters, the apartment is gradually transformed under the strict supervision of Hanan, the head of the cleaners’ team. The process doesn’t always go smoothly, however; a third brother refuses to cooperate, Shraga withdraws from decision-making and Abraham tries to cling on to every single object the cleaners want to remove. A traumatic invasion of privacy forces the brothers to confront their memories in order to try to find a new beginning.
