Cleveland Heep’s job as a caretaker introduces him to a variety of tenants including a group of laid-back loafers who disregard the building’s no smoking rule. He also meets a mother and daughter who tell him the mythical Far East tale of narfs after Story shows up in the pool. At a party thrown for a new tenant, a few people become intoxicated and one man is attacked by a dog-like creature. Although Story shows up without clothes, only leg and shoulder nudity are seen. While the script includes some frightening sequences, there is only is mild sexual innuendo and brief profanities.
