Bridget (Yvonne Block)and her Grandmother(Jan Healy)are about to become roommates. However, what Bridget saw as a unique opportunity to stay with her favorite Nana in New York for the summer quickly turns into an experience she’ll never forget. It seems her sweet Grandma is running an illegal boutique from her apartment, selling hand-made naughty knickers to every senior citizen in the five borough area! Other characters include: Nana’s Neighbor, Vera, (Julie Fredlund) becomes a cohort, a handsome  young cop (Karl Olson) is looking out for Nana and looking fondly at Bridget,  a grumpy landlord (Ron McClellan) who wants Nana out of her rent controlled apartment,  a competitor (Jane Gellner) arriving to collect her lost shipment of goods! The UPS delivery guy (Bill Shaffer) and Nana’s Number One customer! (Tina Krauz).

Will Bridget be able to handle all the excitement? Will her Nana get arrested - or worse! - evicted?
