Bloom tells the lighthearted comedic tale of Betty, an elderly woman whose rich inner life belies her seemingly conventional appearance.


The impromptu discovery of her 60's hit single and beloved, colourful scarf catapults Betty into a dancing reverie. When her daughter Greta sends a tactless gift, Betty's rebellious nature comes to the fore in an hilarious act of defiance.
