Billed as "the real story behind the takeover of America's hippest city," the film follows director Kelly Anderson's personal journey, as a Brooklyn "gentrifier" seeking to understand the forces reshaping her neighborhood along lines of race and class. Anderson moves to Brooklyn in 1988, lured by cheap rents and bohemian culture, but by the election of Michael Bloomberg in 2001 a massive speculative real estate boom is rapidly altering the neighborhood.
