Recently widowed economics professor Walter Vale reluctantly agrees to give a lecture in New York. When he arrives in the city, he finds that two illegal immigrants have taken up residence in his little-used Manhattan apartment. An unlikely friendship develops between Walter and his unexpected guests - Syrian Tarek and his African girlfriend Zainab. Walter's previously bland and unfulfilling life is gradually transformed by their influence.
