New York City, 1972.
Between Central Park and the East River sits an apartment building as tall as a castle, and as orange as a sunset. The Wellraven barely pricks a skyline so grand, but it’s curious history reaches out through occupants, young and old.
Eleven stories chronicle the life and times of characters who cross paths, and share destiny’s fire escape. Ghosts, gravity, romance, and secrets weave the communal narrative.
Step into the elevator. Push any button, but try to remember your way back out. Not everybody makes it.
