Set in the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn, Moving Day centers around Max, a recovering heroin addict. As Max prepares to leave the childhood home he shares with his sister Emily, she tries to convince him that leaving won't eliminate his problems. Emily constantly struggles with letting go -- of her brother, of their parent's house, of a fantasy relationship with her friend Steven. More problems arise when Melinda, Max's alcoholic-in-denial ex-wife shows up sporting secrets of her own. Addiction. Infidelity. Divorce. When we move to a new home, can we leave behind our issues or do they inadvertently get packed with the china?
