Synopsis
Several stories are linked by a series of house moves. As one couple moves out of a home for something bigger and better, another couple moves in, and so it goes all the way up to the lavish mansion owned by a self-made millionaire. When he decides to move back to the working-class area he came from, the cycle returns to its beginning.
