An unlikely, odd couple alliance lies at the heart of this sweetly funny, poignant tale from Prince of Broadway writer/director Sean Baker. Dree Hemingway (daughter of Mariel) plays Jane, a naive young woman drifting through life in California’s San Fernando Valley with a cute chihuahua called Starlet. Jane buys an old thermos flask at a car boot sale and discovers a stash of money hidden inside. The owner of the flask is suspicious, cantankerous octogenarian widow Sadie (Besedka Johnson in her film debut) and their chance encounter is the start of an unexpected friendship that transcends their ages and very different lives to make a lasting impression.
