Life has not been at all pleasant at Magnolia Place Assisted Living in Petula, Georgia. Bingo and basket weaving is NOT what the doctor ordered. Four sassy senior citizens; Beatrice, Eaddy, Imogene and Maude, dish the dirt, fall in love and get into a WHOLE heap of trouble as they find themselves thrown headfirst into solving a dangerous mystery. A roller coaster of hilarity ensues through loads of naughty laughter, happy tears and even an old Elvis impersonator. Will they catch the villain? What happened to Doctor Head? Will Beatrice ever find a man? One thing is certain...these old broads are not YOUR grandmother...or wait...maybe they are.
