Suddenly Single: A Life After Death is a tragi-comedy telling how a former Miss New York State in the Miss America Pageant became a feminist and reinvented her life after the sudden death of her husband. While dealing with a series of cringe-worthy bumper car rides, she got a doctorate, adopted two dogs and created a satisfying encore career despite urgings to find another husband. Along the way, she toured with a choral group before a surprise family member appeared.
