In spite of her love for her profession (she is a visiting nurse) and her great generosity for her clients, Myra Lipinsky sees herself as plain, overweight, passed over. But when a popular high school friend she had a crush on all those years ago comes home to die, Myra gets a second chance of sorts. And so does he. Maryann Plunkett embodies all of Myra's wistful and witty self-deprecation and captures a cast of characters both quirky and real. Stand out characterizations include a wicked Boston accent for the panicky 16-year-old single mother and African American intonation for the blustery drug dealer with a heart of gold.
