In this charming story filled with gentle humor, a beautiful, young woman meets a group of old men on a glorious spring day. Saul flirts shamelessly with Emma, only to have his arch-rival Rajiv try to steal the pretty girl away. Except there's more at stake then a quarrel between two senior citizens. Because these old men are NOT old men, the park is NOT a park, and what they decide will save or destroy us all.
