Widowed mother Mildred (Gena Rowlands) must suddenly redefine herself and find an outlet for her nurturing side when her adult daughter moves out of the family home. Though Mildred thinks she's found her purpose when her neighbor, overworked single mother Monica (Marisa Tomei), asks her to look after her little boy, J.J. (Jake Lloyd), she has great difficulty learning to strike a healthy balance between giving selflessly to others and remembering to take care of herself.
