Synopsis

Alexandra is a 79-year-old artist in a showdown with her family over where she'll spend her remaining years. In Alexandra's corner are her wit, her volcanic passion and the fact that she's barricaded herself in her Brooklyn brownstone with a pile of Molotov cocktails. When Alexandra's estranged son Chris returns after 20 years and crawls through her second floor window, the emotional bombs start detonating.
