Synopsis

In Providence, Rhode Island, habitually widowed Atalanta pays a visit to her second-rate lawyer, Barry Dragonetti.

Intending to settle her latest husband’s affairs, this larger-than-life Greek tightwad quickly becomes a nightmare for her cheesy, self-aggrandizing attorney.

Add Barry’s impossible Croatian mother, a dash of politics, and a couple of opportunistic young lovers, and you have in hand a recipe for comic combustion.
