Storyline

A newly-wed NYC couple move into a low-rent luxury apartment only to be harassed by cryptic elderly neighbors. Matt (Dean Cain) and Jackie (Portia de Rossi) are living in NYC, brimming with that certain "glow" all newly-weds possess. They are in love despite failed attempts at pregnancy and a tight budget. One day, Matt meets a group of health-obsessed elderly people in the park. They seem kind, and offer Matt and Jackie a beautiful low-rent apartment in their building. How can the couple resist a luxury apartment with a state-of-the-art gym, cheap rent, and friendly neighbors? Jackie believes it all too good to be true when she notices a young couple in their building disappears, and elderly neighbors are watching her every move... Written by merryweather

Surprisingly Good. Dean did a fine job!
30 August 2002 | by (Sedona, USA) – See all my reviews

Excellent cast and well written story. Ms. Rossi fine and a solid actor. Many twists. What are they up to? Watch and see for yourselves!

The tennants and owners of "Number 12" are seemingly sincere, warm and outgoing! What are they hiding? Each new young tenant has no living relatives, and the previous young tenants were without relatives too and they keep moving out without any notice are reason. These health nuts at "Number 12" are up to no good. See for yourselves!
