Add to Watchlist

Harold is a teenage boy whose interest are pretty atypical for a young man of his age. He is sullen and spoiled, and he spends most of his time obsessing about death and destruction. The topic so fascinates him that he goes to funerals whenever he has the chance just so he can observe the ritual and try to glean some insight from it. Despite persistently pursuing this morbid hobby, he has little wisdom to show for it. Then, one day when he is crashing a funeral, he meets Maude, a woman who is in her 70s.

Maude is as feisty as they come. She is not bound by any rules of society, and Harold finds her candor refreshing. They begin to spend most of their time together, and for the first time, Harold is really beginning to enjoy life. However, he still has to deal with his troubled relationship with his mother, who largely ignores him but who has her ideas about what he should be doing with his life. While she plots to get him to join the army and tries to set him up on dates with girls his age, he finds solace only in Maude's company.
