They seem exceedingly nice as they offer to help with any work that needs to be done. There is also Charlene’s a quirky handy man who has once been in the navy. The young couple is inquisitive when it comes to the possibility of buried treasure. The thought of fortune takes the couple on a bumpy journey. It seems easy enough. After all, she is just one helpless older woman, isn’t she?
