Mama Knows Best in Cuenca

Kathy is leaving her job in West Palm Beach, Florida, and relocating to Cuenca, Ecuador. The South American city has become an ex-pat and retiree hotspot because of its low cost-of-living and warm climate. Kathy doesn't want to be an "empty-nester" abroad on her own, so she's bringing along her son, Thomas, for the adventure. But this close-knit mother and son butt heads when it comes to finding a house. Thomas not only needs an office space to continue his work as a graphics artist, but the apartment has to be pet-friendly for his dog, Louie. Kathy, meanwhile, is most concerned about the cost on her tight budget. Mom and son will have to figure out a compromise before the house hunt turns into a family feud.
