The story takes place in "Over The Hills", a retirement home. Cat is an elderly woman with cataracts but very keen hearing. Her husband Seemore is very hard of hearing, but can "see more" than most people can. Cat is heiress to a large fortune, but her last will and testament stipulates that her son Solly will only inherit it if he marries before her death. Otherwise, she is leaving everything to Nancy, her beloved nurse, who is like the daughter she never had. Nancy is counting on the fact that Solly has never had luck in the relationship department. Nancy and her boyfriend Lenny plan various ways to thwart Solly's search for a mate, but Solly manages to find love despite their efforts. This may call for more desperate measures.
