PremiseEdit

On the day of her wedding, the eldest daughter of the wealthy Conklin family, Allison, has misgivings about the marriage's success. She locks herself in the bathroom but tells her family that the door is stuck. Her mother, Effie, calls for the building's superintendent, Eamon McBride, to fix the door. After getting into the bathroom, it's revealed that Eamon and Allison are former lovers, which reignites the dwindling flame of their love. Allison's father, Nicholas, doesn't approve of the relationship and even attempts to bribe Eamon into leaving Allison alone. However, Allison decides to follow her heart, regardless of what her family thinks. The show focuses on the development of the relationship and how the wealthy Conklin family get used to Eamon's father, Finn, who works as the building's doorman. The Conklins live in a mansions occupying the top three floors of the building and the McBride's reside in a small basement apartment.
