Fast-forward 5 years and major basement apartment issues later (flood, mould, asbestos, etc.), and Arun and Rosalina are exhausted financially and emotionally. Now with Arun's 3 kids moving in they need to maximize their living space and take over the main floor in addition to the upper two floors for everyone's sanity.
