Overview


Synopsis

_I'm Not Rappaport_ focuses on Nat Moyer, a chatty Jewish retiree with a tendency to exaggerate, and Midge Carter, a feisty African-American woman. The two friends spend their days sitting on a bench in Central Park, trying to mask the horrible realities of aging, mainly through the tall tales that Nat spins. As employers and family members try to ease them these aging friends into obscurity, and street thugs prey upon them, each refuses to relinquish his precarious grip on independence.
