Real estate agent Frank Mollard won't admit it, but he can't move on. Divorced but still attached, he can't sell a house in a property boom - much less connect with his teenage son. One night Frank gets a phone call from his mother. Nothing out of the ordinary. Apart from the fact that she died a year ago. 

Thus blossoms a charming and unusual friendship with an elderly woman which inspires Frank to reconnect with life. 

Everyone deserves a second chance, even a real estate agent. Frank's (Joe La Paglilia) mid-life funk is turned around when he receives a phone call from his dead mother. Divorced and unfulfilled, real estate agent Frank Mollard can't do anything right, be it selling houses, getting over the death of his mother, or connecting with his teenage son. But when he receives a call from an elderly woman who confuses him for her son, Frank is thrown into her life and surprises himself by developing a close bond with her. This comically unexpected relationship wakes Frank up and inspires him to reconnect with the people he's been neglecting.
