Synopsis: In a rundown restaurant on the Upper East Side four people find themselves in a ceaseless battle for survival in a seemingly unforgiving city. Evelyn, an immigrant from Romania, tries to establish control in the chaos of the place that has, since the start of the recession, fallen apart, and in her efforts to enforce her own rules, she further alienates herself from the rest of the staff. Ivana is another waitress at Marcellino, one of the few who aggressively resists Evelyn’s control and the new found power she has found following her employment. Frankie the bartender is different, as he evades Evelyn, having grown up in poverty in the South Bronx, experiencing all kinds of hardship. Then there’s Germano, the owner, who cunningly finds a way to trap his employees as they try to establish more promising lives for themselves. In the end the habits these four individuals have formed as a way to satiate their lust for money or power inevitably brings about their less than desirable fate.
