In New York City's Central Park is an ordinary park bench. But the two 81 year-old men who daily share this bench are not ordinary seniors. Nat Moyer (Walter Matthau), a Jewish political radical of the old school, is a compulsive and fanciful talker, a feisty philosopher, and a troublemaker given to assuming fictional personalities. His daily companion is Midge Carter (Ossie Davis), a former boxer and widower, now a half-blind apartment house superintendent. Midge's approach to life is realistic and down-to-earth, making him a perfect foil for Nat. The men would never admit they're sitting together - they'd more likely say they happen to be sitting on the same bench. And while they do, they observe the ever changing scene around them of life in the big city. Co-stars Amy Irving, Craig T. Nelson, Boyd Gaines and Martha Plimpton.
