A wistful and enchantingly sweet comedy that overflows
with humor and unpredictable tribulation, "Southern Comforts" follows a budding romance between Gus, a crusty and cantankerous old New Jersey widower played by Al Kulcsar, and Amanda, a feisty, saucy and outgoing Southern widow played by Alice McMahon.
Recovering from years of loss of their respective spouses, Amanda is used to getting her own way and Gus, the retired, set-in-his-ways Yankee find in each other what they least expected: a second chance at love.
