"Joe and Jean Brancato, a newly retired Long Island couple, seek to rest on the laurels of a life thus far made up of hard work and economizing," press notes state. "While Joe, retired-by-choice, is content to relax for a bit before 'embarking on all their adventures,' Jean is still licking her wounds from a 'forced' retirement. In this newly sedentary period, Jean begins to question her life, and to her surprise (and Joe's) spontaneously auditions and secures a role in the local community theatre production of a new play. Her journey as an actress leads to a surprising end, as the play begins to mirror real life, bringing unexpected events that will test not only their marriage…but their collective sanity."
