Frank Kennedy is a 51-year-old woman who enrols at the same university as her son David. Armed with nothing more than intelligence and humour she creates a place for herself in the strange new world of the university ... becoming an icon and inspiration to those around her who want to change their lives but are afraid to take the chance.
