A timely metaphor for failing democracy, THE OWNERS takes a seriocomic look at the most local form of self-governance: the co-op apartment building meeting. It includes a curious cast of characters, all of whom own apartments in the same building in Prague, as they attempt to tolerate each others’ presence long enough to try and make some important decisions about the building’s future. Will the neighbors reach an agreement, or will the building become the casualty of their self-centered interests?
