you're never too old to change your tune
A gentleman called Joan lands up in a care home like a colourful, combustible cocktail... ticking.
A gentleman called Jim doesn’t know what’s hit him... everything about his new next-door neighbour is triggering.
Battle begins. May the best man win. But beneath antics and antique armour plating, what are both hiding?
Maybe they’ve more than a wall in common?
Might they even be batting for the same team?
