The tenants of the coveted Carnegie Hall work-live studio spaces have their leases abruptly terminated by the Carnegie Hall Corporation, effectively disbanding the artistic community that has flourished there for over 100 years, and filmmaker Josef "Birdman" Astor captures the entire incident on film. Though few people realized the flats above Carnegie Hall even existed, the tight-knit artist's community thrived there throughout the 20th century. Back in the day, artists such as Marlon Brando and Paddy Chayefsky were tenants. It was always Andrew Carnegie's intention that the studios were a place where creativity would thrive. When greed threatens to take priority over Carnegie's original vision, the tenants band together in a bid to fight back and preserve a cherished piece of New York City history.
