Oscar-winning actress Shirley MacLaine shines as Harriet, the lovable curmudgeon who needs to control everything about her life...everything! She even takes it upon herself to make sure that her obituary will be up to her standards, by having it written while she’s still alive. After identifying the specific elements which are needed in a legendary obit, she marches into the office of the local newspaper and demands that Anne, a young writer (Amanda Seyfried), join her in the endeavor. Although both are at very different points in their lives, an unlikely friendship forms between the two. They embark on a journey which not only alters Harriet’s legacy, but also Anne’s future.
