As Deon, a blocked and anxious artist, struggles to adjust to quarantine at his apartment in the French Quarter, his daily rhythms are interrupted by his downstairs neighbor Nicole’s band practice. At first, he accepts the sounds of music as a comfort. But before long, it becomes a nuisance. He confronts her and politely asks her to turn the music down. She apologizes and obliges. In the ensuing days, Deon’s home life and new normal take shape even as the outside world becomes more bleak and hopeless. In the end, he finds himself whistling the same song he can’t hear anymore because he asked Nicole to turn the music down.
