Two elderly women (Abby and Marilyn) room together at an assisted living facility. Abby is not happy about having a roommate, while Marilyn is quite content if she could have the bed by the window. They make a bet to fix their situations. Abby bets Marilyn that she can make her angry – if she wins, Marilyn moves out to another room. Marilyn bets Abby that she can make her scared – if she wins, she trades beds with Abby. Practical jokes ensue, getting more and more serious as lives are put at risk. Several other characters fill out the cast, helping Abby or Marilyn gain the upper-hand, until they learn to either live with one another or die, whichever comes first.
