A single father and his daughter take shelter in their make-shift basement bomb shelter during the first air raid over Brooklyn of the coming war. When the bombing begins they are faced with the choice of which neighbors to let in their safe haven. Conflicts soon arise as the ethnic diversity of the occupants leads to discourse. When the building above collapses from a bomb, the nine neighbors are trapped and must work together to survive the night and each other.
