Mr. Green, an elderly Jewish gentleman lives alone, his wife has died and he
doesnt take good care of himself, he doesnt know how.
Along comes Ross, a young man, who inadvertently knocks Mr. Green over with his car.
As a community service Ross is ordered to visit Mr. Green once a week for 6 months.
The two are worlds apart.
Mr. Green is messy, grumpy, and difficult.
Ross is neat, professional and polite.
Over the course of the 6 months they eat a lot, argue a lot and reveal their innermost secrets to each other and in the end find the strength to confront their individual issues and become lifelong friends.
Their problems stem from the conflict of their beliefs, religion, lifestyles and the expectations of others.
However when it comes down to it, love and cherishing what is important, regardless of what society, religion, or family expect, is all that matters.
