Mrs. Stancliffe's Rose Garden Bed & Breakfast has been successful for many years. Her guests (nearly all women) return year after year. Her elderly next-door neighbor, Bud Davis believes they come to spend time with him in romantic liaisons. Her other neighbor and would-be suitor, Henry Mitchell is a retired chemist who has developed an untested blue pill called Venusia to increase the libido of menopausal women. When you add the guest list of three older women (one of which has agreed to test Henry's new pill), a bottle of Viagra (which looks very similar to Venusia), and Bud's attempts to entertain all three women the same evening; the fun begins! When the mayhem settles down, all the women find their lives moving in new and surprising directions. And the men? Well, let's just say that you can teach old dogs new tricks.
