In Paul Duran's witty comedy-drama, down-and-out Jerry (Will Stewart) chances upon an old woman Alma (Carol Gustafson) walking her dog. The lucky encounter leads to a job when Alma's daughter Helen (Stepfanie Kramer) hires him to look after her mother and the dog. Jerry quickly realizes that the job is more complicated than he originally surmised. Alma is foul tempered, and a trio of wizened bridge-play suitors make increasingly bizarre demands on Jerry, while Helen and her vivacious teenaged daughter both make sexual advances on him. Later, when he enlists the help of his African-American friends, an unfortunate clash ensues resulting in tragedy.
