While waiting for a show to start at a theater, two strangers start a conversation–Lee (the great, 4-time Emmy-award winning actress Michael Learned of The Waltons) and Ben (John Wesley). Both Lee and Ben are elderly and alone and are surprised to discover an easy and immediate connection to each other.

After the show, Lee and Ben decide to spontaneously continue their evening together. As they talk into the night, the two septuagenarians open up about their pasts. They are shocked to discover how a long-ago act of racism has drastically altered the course of both of their lives but also profoundly grateful to have lived long enough to have a second chance at righting some painful wrongs.
