“Neighbors” Film Synopsis”

After the birth of their first child, Mac Radner (Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Byrne) move into a suburban house. Their intention was to give the child a fair upbringing in the traditional sense. But, they faced sudden problems following the establishment of a fraternity house in the adjacent residence. It was a local fraternity headed by Zac Efron and Dave Franco. An intensive and hilarious conflict between the two parties ensued.

After flimsy efforts to make nice with the noisy and hard-partying college-going young boys, the serious dispute takes shape.  The new parents are struggling with becoming good and normal parents and a group of college students who are still sticking to their childhood, are spoiling their efforts.
