After the deaths of both her husband and her son, Kathleen Larson’s only family is her wicked daughter-in-law, Tillie, and her son’s much kinder ex-wife, Carol. A widow from Homewood, Alabama and a crossing guard for the past 20 years, she is nearing sixty-eight and has only just begun to dream of her retirement. But after an accident leaves Kathleen temporarily disabled, Tillie has other plans. Several forged documents and one tall-tale later, Kathleen finds herself locked up at Lakeside Nursing Home, a run-down memory care facility run by a fake doctor with a criminal past. It’s now up to Carol to find Kathleen before Tillie steals her home and her money.
