Three Jewish widows meet once a month for tea before going to visit their husbands' graves. Ida is sweet tempered and ready to begin a new life; Lucille is a feisty embodiment of the girl who just wants to have fun; and Doris is prim and a bit judgmental. Sam the butcher meets the widows while visiting his wife's grave and seems to be shyly smitten with Ida, but Doris and Lucille thwart the budding romance to protect Ida from disappointment. They are guilt stricken when this nearly breaks Ida's heart, but all is resolved happily in the end.

Suitable for all ages.
