After 7 years of absence from New York City, Ralphi is back to develop commercial real estate in his old neighborhood. However, upon his return, Ralphi encounters his estranged brother, Junior, who followed in his father’s footsteps, Ramon Matas (David Zayas), and is now an elite salsa dancer and an unwavering activist AGAINST gentrification in the neighborhood.

Trouble

A comedy about two siblings who stop at nothing to outwit one another in a battle for control of family real estate. The fact that in this case, the dueling brother and sister are getting on in years, but are still locked in a rivalry that most adults have long outgrown, makes their story a fresh and funny high-stakes conflict. Academy Award-winner Anjelica Huston stars as Maggie, a tough-as-nails widow who fights to hold onto the family’s beautiful wooded homestead in rural Vermont, while Bill Pullman, playing her ne’er-do-well brother, Ben, plots to sell the land to developers right out from under her. Preferring to fight rather than settle their differences in a mature fashion, the siblings wage war with forged documents, bribes, collusion, and, when push comes to shove, a rifle, in a fight to (just about…well, close to) the death.
