After a debilitating stroke, Balmy Knight sells her home in Savannah and moves in with daughter Sara, son-in-law Richard, and two grandchildren. She struggles daily with her loss of independence and lack of respect. Aided by a walker, Balmy drags herself to the park and back to build up her strength. In the park she befriends Jake, a homeless guy living there in a cardboard box. Lonely for company, she invites him home for homemade buttermilk biscuits and a game of Scrabble. Jake’s visits lift her spirits, but what really makes her smile is aggravating her son-in-law and getting his goat.

 

Life becomes complicated when Balmy’s old friend Sunny Day—from her Broadway-performing days in the Sixties—invites her to live with her in a high-rise retirement community. Sara, overly protective of her mother, is against this until she visits the Villas and realizes Balmy’s days would be filled with activities and lots of company. After moving into the Villas, Balmy is wooed by a charming, rich British gentleman who still has all of his hair and teeth. But her heart longs for the mysterious Jake, who has vanished, along with his cardboard box.
