In 1942, in the Bronx, Evelyn Kurnitz has just passed away following a lengthy illness. Her husband, Eddie Kurnitz, needs to take a job as a traveling salesman to pay-off the medical bills incurred, and decides to ask his stern and straight talking mother if his two early-teen sons, Jay and Arty, can live with her and their Aunt, Bella Kurnitz, in Yonkers. Despite their Grandma owning and operating a candy store, Jay and Arty don’t like their new living situation as they’re afraid of their Grandma, and find it difficult to relate to their crazy Aunt Bella, whose slow mental state is manifested by perpetual excitability and short attention span, which outwardly comes across with a childlike demeanor.
Watch what kinds of trouble these siblings get into when they’re stuck in Yonkers.
