New York siblings Laura and Elliot receive word of their mother Lilly's imminent death from cancer and break an eighteen month estrangement to rush to her side. Upon arrival they find that Lilly has a house guest, Ted, an attractive "groundskeeper" half her age. It was he, not Lilly, who informed the kids of their mother's condition. Suspicious of his presence, the kids want him gone, but Lilly wants him around at least till her kids have gone. With death coming, Lilly advises her kids on life and helps drop the barriers that have grown between them, but upon her death Elliot discovers that Ted's motives for hanging around aren't purely altruistic.
It's never too late.
Did You Know?
I remember when you were a kid. We signed you up for swimming lessons, and when we got there, you saw that some of the other kids could swim better than you. That was it. You were done. If you couldn't win, you didn't want to play - ever.
Any other FUN little childhood stories you want to share?
That's my fear for you, that you never try anything out of your comfort zone.
I do plenty outside my comfort zone.
Good, but next time an opportunity comes up, throw yourself into it. See what happens, ...
