Twenty-one-year-old Leo is lost. He has just biked 4,000 miles from Seattle looking for life’s answers and is now holed up in a Greenwich Village apartment living with his ninety-one-year-old grandmother, Vera. To his surprise, this is just what he needs as his feisty left-wing Grandma offers him a new perspective on the world. These unlikely roommates bicker and infuriate each other, but never lose their unquestioning love as they discover new ways to learn and grow together.
