The indignities - and the dignity - of old age. Belle sits in the sun with a half dozen of her friends, old Jewish women dressed colorfully, outside their retirement home, probably in Queens. A minibus arrives to take them shopping. Belle finds a couple of identical stuffed toys. She stands on line to buy them, and she also needs to use the ladies' room. Will she make it? What if she doesn't? Written by
Belle is a subversive fable of old age & beauty.
