Synopsis: Jeffrey, a retired firefighter turned building superintendent, shows what it really means to care for a building, a city, and the people in it. Set in Upper Manhattan, this short documentary explores the themes of gentrification, poverty, and the power of memory through the eyes of one of New York’s unsung heroes.

Director's Statement

When I set out to make my first solo film, my friend and neighbor Jeffrey graciously allowed me to follow him for a “day in the life” of a building super. What followed was a lifetime’s worth of lessons about hard work, humility, and love for your neighborhood.

This film is my homage to a wonderful friend, neighbor, and real-life superhero.
