With fabled Neil Simon humor, we meet Mel who's recently been fired. In addition, Mel is losing a battle with his environs. Polluted air kills everything growing on his terrace; the paper-thin apartment walls reveal the unsavory lives of neighbors; his psychiatrist dies with Mel's money. What next? Mel has a nervous breakdown. It is on recovery that we come to esteem him and his wife, and people like them, who have the resilience, the grit to survive.
