ALIAS: MITZI & MACK is a humorous crime/dramedy that has its way with the crazy, funny world that is South Florida. Characters you'll love and despise bring to life a story for grown-ups that raises the question - could this happen? (Hint - yes.)
Shirley and Stanley Nowack retired to West Sago Beach, Florida, to live out their days playing mah-jongg and golf. Cue the worst recession since the 1930's. Their already meager investments haven't rebounded.
Determined not to spend their remaining years dumpster diving or sleeping in parks, they find jobs. Menial ones. They're over 70 and fortunate to get those.
But bad luck and deeper trouble soon pummel them into desperation. Add in their control-freak daughter's and Don Juan son's problems, and they're on a collision course with disaster. This rule-following, white-bread, and average couple hatches a plan to save their home and return them to days of leisure.
There's just one eensy problem. If they get caught, they'll go to jail.
