Apartment block tenants seek the aid of alien mechanical life-forms to save their building from demolition.

During a far shot of the building burning, a group of people are backing up towards the camera. One of these men hit the camera and you can see the camera slightly shake, the man then looks at the camera with the corner of his eye.
During the opening credits, pictures of young Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy are shown. This includes their actual wedding photo, since the actors (who often play a married couple on stage or in the movies) were married for decades.
