Jesse returns to his old college for a teacher’s retirement party. There he meets Zibby.  As she’s 16 years his junior, Jesse resists entering into a sexual relationship with her. Although there might not be a romance, the relationship with Zibby gives Jesse the emotional shake up that he needs.

There’s not a lot more to the plot of this movie, but the simplicity actually works well. Olsen and Radnor are able to drive the film pretty much on their own. It’s quite enjoyable, with subtle humour and an easy pace. This isn’t a stand out movie, but it’s still worth watching.
