A comedy about an ex-teacher, who is newly retired. A chance meeting with his estranged daughter opens up new avenues.


Donald Willis, a new retiree, is a theatrical and a Marxist - a devoted fan of Groucho. Though he is happily married to Mary, his son Billy is a student activist and eco-warrior. As Donald and Mary are about to depart for Donald's retirement do, his estranged daughter Clare whom he hasn't seen for eleven years, arrives with his nine year-old granddaughter Janey. The attempted reconciliation between Donald and Clare stalls, and the situation is further complicated when Billy is arrested after a Monopoly demo.
