It’s never too late to fall in love – at least that’s what FRANK and MINDY realize when they travel back home with the idea that it’s time to put their elderly mother, DOROTHY, in a rest home and come to find out she is having an affair with a gregarious 48 year old bon vivant, BURT.  The announcement that she plans to marry him causes pandemonium, and MINDY and FRANK enlist brother, JED, a Hollywood scenic artist, to help dissuade BURT from his intentions. JED’S attempts go awry, causing the situation to spin even more out of control. A brand new comedy by Catherine Butterfield about finding love in all the wrong places – and one or two right ones.
