520 A couple escaping the opulent lifestyle of Manhattan's
Upper East Side move to Newport, Rhode Island, only to be
confronted by the trappings of the life they tried to
leave behind. Nate, a midlevel Wall Streeter, and his
longtime girlfriend Emily are effectively evicted from New
York City when they find they can no longer afford their
apartment. An out presents itself in the form of a job
offer for Nate in Newport--complete with a bucolic, small,
and comparatively affordable new house. Eager to start
fresh, they flee city life with their worldly goods packed
tightly in their Jeep Cherokee. Yet within minutes of
arriving in Rhode Island, their car and belongings are
stolen, and they're left with nothing but the keys to an
empty house and their bawling 10-month-old son. Over the
three-day weekend that follows, as Emily and Nate watch
their meager pile of cash dwindle and tensions increase,
the secrets they kept from each other in the city emerge,
threatening to destroy their hope for a shared future.
