Synopsis >

Following her rave cabaret review, The Actress Gail's lands an audition in Los Angeles thanks to her pianist, Jim. In her youth, Gail turned down an opportunity to audition for famed agency, William Morris, but she isn't going to let her big break slip away this time. She packs her bags, kisses her dog Pumpkin goodbye, and heads to Hollywood with her son Cary. After landing in La La Land, Gail gets her hands on a star map and tears around the hills and other tourist hot spots. She gets headshots made and then makes her way to audition for a big time casting director. Though she's nervous, she nails it. Will Gail soon star in her own commercial? Back in Surprise, Cary's partner George has been tasked with watching Pumpkin. The sneaky dog gets loose though, and George must hunt to find her before Gail returns. Enlisting the help of Gail's friends Sandy The Wild Child, Ann The Ex-nun, LaWanda Hot Legs, and Mort, the seniors scour Sun City for Gail's precious pooch. LaWanda finds Pumpkin and returns her to the backyard... but forgets to tell George! When Gail and Cary arrive home, George breaks the news to Cary that Pumpkin is still gone. The two men prepare to brave Gail's wrath, but are relieved to find her happily petting Pumpkin in the backyard, safe and sound. After Ann's exciting experience skydiving, she is anxious to check off another bucket list item. This time, she'd like for John to join her. While gardening, she asks her husband what he would like to do. John discusses his physical limitations, such as his weight and failing eyesight. He would however, love to drive a racecar. Ann has also long had a need for speed, and the two plan to go racing together... just as soon as John passes his driving test. Ann waits anxiously as John takes the exam. Despite his degenerative eye condition, he passes! The pair make their way to Bondurant, a racing school, to tear up the track.
