Weather reports show a blizzard headed for New York City. By mid-afternoon, snow has begun to fall, the city is sending out travel advisories, and people are anxious to get home. Once home, everyone is in for the night. But what “in for the night” looks like can vary widely. This film observes five different households from varying radical, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds. It provides a window into the worlds of our neighbors that we never knew.
