Margo’s over fifty. She lives with a string of unsuccessful love affairs behind her and a liver calloused by cocktails. The morning after her niece’s wedding, she sits with martini in hand, mulling over her past. She doesn’t mull long, however, because the niece decided she didn’t want to be married after all and has gone off with some stolen property. Margo’s sister offers her $50,000 to retrieve both. So she heads across the country with the jilted husband in an old red roadster. Madcap hijinks ensue.
