Glass-walled, floor-through condominium on the 29th floor of a just-built 50-floor building located in what sounds a lot like Manhattan. 50ish couple, Alexa and Raul, move in with the interior still bare, and begin to figure out how to build it out. They engage a couple of designers (Mario and Serena, young and attractive), and a “space therapist” (Dr. Bentwood, very demented). The action follows the emotional convolutions of Raul and Alexa’s relationship, the marriage-threatening anxiety of creating their “dream space,” their sexually-charged tango with Serena and Mario, and the stresses and spiritual confusion of a voyeuristic, exhibitionistic life behind the walls of glass of a post-9/11 world.
