Synopsis

This is a comedy set in a Jewish old-age home in the Bronx. The residents are cranky, argumentative about their surroundings and each other. To change their perspective and respect for each other, they each play-act somebody famous. This leads to a renewed vitality, imaginative relationships and plain old-fashioned fun. The residents have distinctive individual personality traits that are not obscured by being old. The tendency of the young to view the old as just ‘old’ and thus the same is deplored and debunked.
