NICKI just shakes his head
ELEANOR. I masturbated. I masturbated! For the first time in my life.
ELEANOR notices NICKI's embarrassed, tortured expression.
ELEANOR. Well, I'm not trying to impress you. I'm just trying to tell you something.”

In a nursing home and memory care facility in a remote corner of Washington State, the one male resident, Gil Fletcher, stays busy keeping the beds of female co-residents warm. But questions of consent become tricky with the arrival of a new aide who challenges the home's free love policies. It's the Alzheimerzy sex romp you've been waiting for! There's also quite a bit about Nicki Minaj.
