After teaching fourth grade for forty-two years, Beth St. Claire retires. To celebrate, she paints her living room beige. Then she has a heart attack. Michael Bartoli has had a rough ten years caring for his wife Evelyn. After her death, Michael has a heart attack. Beth and Michael meet in Cardiac Rehab and discover when your heart attacks you, everything changes. After a cross-country road trip in a borrowed Airstream, the newlyweds land in the middle of the Arizona desert. Here, together with family and friends, they celebrate their senior love story (wine is involved) and tackle a staggering worry-they may not have the financial means to grow old.
