Description


As Camille grows older, Brian feels it's time that she moves closer to him. Camille doesn't share that view and proceeds to prove it through Adult Education Courses to show she is still relevant. She enlists her friend Sarah to attend 'Intro to French Cooking' with her. All goes well until their perfect souffle deflates with a thud. Camille's 'Internal Construction Class' leaves her nauseous from the dry wall and Camille's, entertaining but often inconvenient, rollator gets covered with wallpaper paste. All is not lost as Camille's great grandson, Pyke, is able to convince his grandfather, Brian, that great grandma Camille can swing a mean hammer and is still way cool.
