Gertrude's husband dies suddenly, leaving her with 3 sons and a farm. Now she has enrolled in seminary to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a minister, but she faces challenges doing so in the 1960s. Now her 2 grown sons return from their travels to South America with a Capucion monkey for her. "Elmer" and his escapades change Gertrude's grieving and solitary life forever. A brave lady setting out on her own--with a monkey to explain to all she comes into contact with--will it work out? Heartwarming, funny and a lesson to us about loving and taking chances.
