This timeless romantic comedy finds senior citizens, Sam and Amy, newly married, arriving in their honeymoon retirement village only to discover the "Fountain of Youth" in their new Florida home.  No one realizes that the water supply to their new apartment wing is hooked up to this fabled water supply.  Amy sips some of the water and their honeymoon turns topsy-turvy as Amy becomes a 19 year old!  Now they must survive the most incredible and comical "period of adjustment" a bride and groom have ever encountered.

"Amy's Wish" is a delightful read.  Perhaps a bit tricky to cast the roles of Amy and Scooter, who must believably be the same person 35+ years apart. But a sweet and tasteful show, and a nice chance to showcase older actors. It's on my short list.
