When Danny is greeted by the doorman he is informed that it is a rent controlled apartment and with the rental market in Manhattan, a deal like this is too much for Danny to pass up.

The doorman suggest that if Danny wants to inherit the apartment he needs to squat in the apartment and wait for the doorman’s friend (who happens to be an attorney) to get in touch with him. The attorney then informs Danny that he must stay locked in the apartment for 12 days until the lease can be transferred over and if he leaves the landlord could lock him out permanently.

As he looks around the apartment he feels like it was fate that brought it to him and he becomes determined to keep it. Joe the doorman is the only one he has contact with and that is only when he brings up groceries and essentials. Danny is starting to feel the impact of being alone and strange things begin to happen. First his cat goes missing, then neighbors start to disappear. The power goes off periodically and now the doorman has been replaced.
