Kate Corrigan has her life in order and a new house in the suburbs, and when she meets her new neighbor and her grandson, they overwhelm Kate’s tiny existence with a roller coaster friendship and the problems of the elderly women on the block. This show reminds us that the presence of good people in our life can be transformative if we just open our door and our heart and let them in.
