Summary
In a small town on the Mexican border live two brothers, Don Fidencio and Don Celestino. Stubborn and independent, they now must face the facts: they are old, and they have let a family argument stand between them for too long. Don Celestino's good-natured housekeeper encourages him to make amends--while he still can. They secretly liberate Don Fidencio from his nursing home and travel into Mexico to solve the mystery at the heart of their dispute: the family legend of their grandfather's kidnapping. As the unlikely trio travels, the brothers learn it's never too late for a new beginning
Summary
Don Celestino has not spoken to his grumpy older brother, Don Fidencio, in years, ever since...well, it's not quite clear what started off the estrangement. At any rate, prompted by his lovely housekeeper (and much younger love), Socorro, Celestino frees Fidencio from the terrible nursing home his daughter and son-in-law have placed him in, and the two aging, bickering men (and hopeful Socorro) take off on a journey to Mexico, where they hope to investigate the old family legend at the heart of their dispute. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
