Repulsing the Monkey is a story about a brother and a sister who have inherited their parents' bar in a blue collar neighborhood in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The area is becoming gentrified and they struggle with the question: Should they sell or should they keep their family and neighborhood's heritage alive? Repulsing the Monkey tackles the conflicts and heartbreak that one family faces when profit is placed above all.
