Orthodox Jewish aging twins Abraham and Shraga live a reclusive existence in their inherited Brooklyn home. After the death of their parents, they stop throwing away anything and start accumulating all sorts of items, making their living conditions unsanitary. Their upstairs tenant threatens to stop paying them rent unless they proceed with a radical clean up. Abraham and Shraga are forced to open their doors to a professional cleaning company. The traumatic invasion of privacy that ensues pushes them to confront their memories in order to find a new beginning...

Abraham y Shraga, dos gemelos judios ortodoxos, viven en la casa que heredaron en Nova York. Desde que sus padres murieron hace unos 10 anos han ido acumulando basura y objetos diversos en una suerte de mal entendido sindrome de diogenes. Ante esta situacion de dejadez, el inquilino de arriba los amenaza con dejar de pagar el alquiler hasta que los gemelos no accedan a realizar una limpieza radical de su apartamento. Sin trabajos y ante la posibilidad de perder su unica fuente de ingresos y en consecuencia la casa, Abraham y Shraga no tienen mas remedio que abrir sus puertas a una empresa de limpieza especializada. El proceso se convierte en una invasion de su intimidad y privacidad frente a la que los gemelos se ven obligados a luchar por preservar sus recuerdos; tambien a crecer, pese su avanzada edad, para acabar descubriendo una nueva manera de afrontar sus vidas.
