Alli and Jacob are a couple of 30-somethings living in New York City with their three young children. Alli is busy and stressing in nursing the kids, straining her relationship with husband Jacob. Alli's apartment's window faces with an apartment neighbour's window. Alli and Jacob both covertly spy on the couple, bitter about their loss of youth and new responsibilities as parents.
One day, Jacob comments that the neighbour man has "shaved his head" and looks hungover. Shortly after, while Jacob and the kids are out, Alli spies across the street again to find the man in hospice; he dies soon after. Alli goes out to witness the man being taken out in a body bag and finds the wife crying on the sidewalk. The woman reveals that ever since her husband became "sick," they would find comfort in watching the family through the window, much in the way Jacob and Alli did. The two embrace.

Critic Reviews‘True-crime reenactments have been popular fodder for short-film directors of late, but this one is unusually effective, relying on transcripts of police interviews with the two suspects, Robert Thompson and Jon Venables (played by Leon Hughes and Ely Solan in a pair of stunning child performances), to provide a window into their psychology.’ Variety
