Additional Info

Two elderly, usually quite proper sisters in a small Midwestern town inexplicably have developed a passion for watching boxing on television. When a shabby transient shows up at their door looking for odd jobs, they spot a photo of him in boxing trunks and excitedly invite him to stay for dinner. Throwing caution to the wind, the sisters decide to get him back into fighting trim. Their unorthodox version of training incudes plenty of home cooking and custard pie. Is he who they think he is, or is he a glib opportunist reveling in the attentions of two old ladies? Will he demolish their dream or provide them with a satisfying adventure in their waning years?
