Middle-aged New Yorker Eddie Madden (Edward Asner) has a relatively comfortable life with his family and runs a modestly successful parking garage. His predictable existence is thrown for a loop when he falls for one of his customers, the beautiful -- and much younger -- Mercedes Cole (Meredith Baxter Birney).
