Sadie Goldberg lives with her daughter and son-in-law, whose bickering family have become dependent on her Social Security checks.  Mary O’Shea lives in the deafening silence of her lonely apartment. The two women meet at New York’s LaGuardia Airport, where they “people watch” to escape to the outside world.
