Guilt drives some people crazy; it drives Stock to early retirement.

Old at heart, Stock Burton spends his youth living with his grandfather at the retirement home. Feigning satisfaction with his life as a pill-popping, golf-playing, 20-year-old retiree, Stock avoids facing the mistakes of his past. But when vandalism frightens the residents, the management – and inevitable reality – force Stock out of retirement. Finally showing his face around town, Stock continues to run into Dahlia, an old crush and a part of his haunted past. Without the buffer of retirement, can he still hide from what he can’t seem to avoid? Quirky and heartfelt, Old Stock reminds us we must come to terms with our lives before we can grow up.
