Some people may head to the park to catch up on some reading, commune with nature, walk the dog or get some exercise. But not retired mailman Chaim Shotsky. He visits a Brooklyn park to, well, visit. He's become close with the pigeons there — he's got names for them and everything — and he's started talking with Kelly Burke. This Iowan is new to New York, and she and Chaim have a lot to discuss. Like how his "actor" son, Reuben, has changed his name to Rock Cooper. And how Chaim's daughter has decided that she needs to find herself — never mind that she has three kids and a husband. Plus, Chaim himself is in a loveless marriage. So how can Kelly help? Well, she can listen for starters. But she also just might change Chaim's life.
