When an elderly widower finds love in a younger woman, all that separates them from their future is the feud that starts with his protective, selfish son. Who knew love could be this messy?

Stan lost his wife years ago and has fallen in love with Kate, his home health aide. On his birthday, he's invited to his son's home (Rick and his pregnant African-American wife, Alicia) for dinner where he reveals the news that he's marrying Kate.

The story has a myriad of themes, including a May-December romance, interracial marriage, biracial children, remarrying after a spouse passes, faith, and more. It's a complicated story, with comedy, romance, drama and thrills, packed into only 13 pages.

The writer, KC Allen, and this screenplay, were featured on an episode of Script Shop.

The Writer: KC Allen

I started writing in college and loved it. I continued writing for broadcast in my 20 years of radio, both as a morning show host and creative commercial producer. When that career evolved into video production, my writing for business continued. I'm a published writer twice over, and now I write movies. My first produced screenplay won 5 awards, my second has won 2 Best Of awards,1 1st runner up award and a Best Film nomination and continues to do well on the festival circuit, and my third has also garnered Best Of, 1st Runner up, Best Romantic Comedy and a bunch of nominations. I have four features cooking right now, and am on track to making narrative films my next career. Go to bio
