The distressed emotions that Arvilla Holden are feeling upon the death of her husband Joe Holden are compounded by dealing with Joe's adult daughter, Francine Packer. Joe and Arvilla were lovingly married for twenty years, and although they lived in Pocatello, Idaho - Arvilla's home town - they traveled the world on one adventure after another. Joe was from Santa Barbara, California, where Francine and the extended Holden family still live. Arvilla is certain that Joe wrote a new will after they got married, but since that will is nowhere to be found, the official will is the one that Francine has in her possession, which outlines certain things that Arvilla knows Joe would not now have wanted. That will states that Joe's embalmed body is to be interned with Francine's mother in Santa Barbara, despite Joe already having been cremated. Arvilla knows that Joe would have wanted his ashes scattered into the wind. The will also deeds the house in which Arvilla and Joe lived their entire ... Written by

Film shows extraordinary friendship between ordinary people in trying circumstances. The witty remarks in this film during personal hardships adds the humor needed to get through life's circumstances. The three main cast members compliment each other throughout the movie. The supporting cast adds another dimension to the superb three leading actors. Great scenery accentuate the thought process from scene to scene. Music also helps the tempo of the movie. Costumes were very good. Acting was genuine and the actor's subtle remarks shows individual character as well as their great acting ability. I thought the idea of the telephone was very cleaver and can possibly start a new trend for phones.
