PlotEdit

The story revolves around an older widowed woman reconnecting with her high school sweetheart after not seeing him for thirty-five years.

ReceptionEdit

The Los Angeles Times said "this is Arthur’s show all the way and she makes the time worthwhile, even when the second half of the script doesn’t measure up to the first. Shy and awkward, feminine and determined, she has never been more appealing."[1]
