This is a delightful story about an ageing former Hollywood film star who loses her Beverly Hills home after her husband dies because of a crooked accountant. She returns to her childhood home after 60 years away and has to learn how to take care of herself without servants and cooks to do everything for her. She doesn't have a clue about housekeeping, shopping ,laundry etc. It is hilarious at times. With a surprise ending.
