Empty nesters Greg and Kate have moved back to Manhattan after twenty-two years in the suburbs, ready for the next chapter of their lives.  However, life has a way of giving you what you think you don't want.  Greg finds Sylvia, a street-smart lab/poodle mix, and brings her home.  She promptly becomes a bone of contention between Greg and Kate, testing their marriage to hilarious and touching effect.
