Abstract:

Two nursing home roommates become friends and plot an adventure.

Joel hates being told when to eat, when to sleep, when to take his pills. He's fed up with life in the nursing home, and begins to plan a way out. Then his new roommate, a retired soap opera actor named Frank, start turning the nursing-home community upside down. Frank is the only one who listens to and stands up for Joel. When Joel explains his burgeoning plan, they embark together on a mission to find the perfect escape. Along the way they discover that it's never too late for new beginnings. -- adapted from back cover.
