On the seventh-story ledge of an apartment building, a man stands. He pauses, ready to jump, but is suddenly interrupted by a string of neighbors and partygoers—a pair of murderous lovers, a suspicious shrink, and an ex-actor with a false mustache and 150 million reasons for marriage. In 7 Stories, Canadian writer and director Morris Panych weaves together multiple narratives involving gunshots, cocktails, nurses, God, and one particular umbrella to create a sharp and unpredictable dark comedy.
