In a sunny room at the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility, cantankerous Abby is forced to share her quarters with new-arrival Marilyn. She has no choice but to attempt to get rid of the infuriatingly chipper woman by any means necessary. A seemingly harmless bet between the two women quickly escalates into a dangerous game of one-upmanship that reveals not just the tenacity of these worthy opponents, but also deeper truths that each would rather remain hidden. This cleverly written tale of adversaries is funny and touching.
