    Muriel Harris is an 81-year old free spirit. Never one to let an opportunity pass her by, she is determined to make the best of her stay while recovering at a rehabilitation center. In spite of protests from her daughters, Chantabella and Jayne, Muriel sets her sights on Maurice, her dashing 88-year old physical therapist. And when Muriel is on a mission, the competition doesn’t stand a chance!
