About the show:

The Last Romance is a charming love story that proves that love can happen at any age. Widower Ralph Bellini figures he needs a change of pace in his advancing years, so he takes a different path on his daily walk. The result: he discovers a second change at love when he meets Carol Reynolds at a Hoboken dog park.
