the chaotic art of life

Evan is a copy editor for a small underground newspaper. Mark is an employee at an art gallery. They share an apartment in Hell’s Kitchen, NYC. When Mark brings home an art installation titled The Fractal Dissonance of Clothing with Ladder and plants it in the middle of the living room, their disharmonious relationship erupts into open hostility. The ensuing battle around art - along with the arrival of a young fashion design student as a roommate and mother appearing on the scene - forces the two men to confront their inhibitions around art, love, and life.
