She intends to give the entire fortune away to people who wish to pursue their “foolish dreams,” but her stepchildren strongly object. To prevent her from doing away with the family’s wealth and ruining their legacy, they have her committed to a sanatorium called The Cloisters, and it is among the gentle residents there that she finds her true family.
A warm comedy that compares the kindness and loyalty of psychiatric patients with the greed and hostility of so-called “normal people.”
An entertaining and fanciful comedy, where kindness and affection triumph over greed and dishonesty.
