Brief Synopsis:
One little white lie leads to another in this hilarious farce, complete with a former movie star, a mobster hit man, an accident prone next door neighbor, a mysterious potting shed, and a gardener inexplicably masquerading as a psychiatrist...whose misguided advice actually seems to work! Will everyone survive the mayhem?
