The Last Resort proves that love not only can germinate but can grow and flourish even in the most deathly environments.

Marjorie Kendrick a widow half paralyzed by a stroke is dumped into a posh Long Island nursing home by her son. Most of the other elderly patients she meets in the home's recreation room are kept docile and cooperative by the use of drugs. The only exception is Henry Downs who as Marjorie soon learns avoids the diet of pills by collaborating with the nursing home's management.

Like most women her age Marjorie has lived her life doing as she was told. But that changes following her brush with death and as she fights her own paralysis she strives to shake off the paralysis of the others. Little by little the group comes to life until finally Marjorie galvanizes them into an all-out revolt. Even the sedentary Henry discovers that yes there certainly can be not only life but romance after 70.
