Frank Garrett is caught completely off-guard when Jackie, his wife of thirty-seven years, announces she’s leaving. Her only explanation? “You don’t send me flowers.”
Frank seeks solace and answers at the New York apartment of his son Charlie, a video game designer. When Charlie calls his sister Claire in a panic, he discovers Jackie has found refuge at Claire’s Connecticut home.
Via a series of telephone conspiracies, the siblings join forces on a mission to get their parents back together- and more importantly, back in their own home. But complications arise when Frank is introduced to Rita, the lovely widow across the hall…
