As the cast members reunite thirty years later in the loft they had once lived together, they reflect on how it had changed their lives and how those changes resonate in their lives to this day.
All of the seven roommates had initiated themselves in the field of arts: Heather, Becky, Andre are in the music; Eric, a model, had planned to switch to acting; Kevin is a critic and poet; Julie is a dancer, and Norman is a designer and painter. And, all of them had lots of time to hang around in the loft. They goof around, have fun together, and also get into fights, which is the source of all the drama.

Nies, who then suffered from COVID, could not physically join the team for when they reunite for the series. In the hotel room in which he remained sequestered, he participates through video conference.
