Lillian Boxfish took 1930s New York by storm, working her way up writing copy for R.H. Macy's to become the highest paid advertising woman in the country. Now it's the last night of 1984 and Lillian, 85 years old but just as sharp and savvy as ever, is on her way to a party. On a 10-mile walk through the city, Lillian meets bartenders, bodega clerks, security guards, criminals, children, parents, and parents-to-be, while reviewing a life of excitement and adversity, passion and heartbreak, illuminating all the ways New York has changed-- and has not.
