Observatory Mansions is turned upside down when a new resident arrives, threatening to unleash dangerous memories that have been buried for generations. 

Base on Edward Carey's celebrated 2000 novel, this new adaptation centres on a group of recluses living together in ancestral home-turned-slum building.  A new tenant's unexpected arrival ushers in an age of upheaval, forever altering the estranged residents and bringing forbidden secrets to light.  Against a backdrop of decay, isolation, and urban development, the story explores the weight of member, the struggle for human connections, and the potential of transformation.
