Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Inez is married and has two children of her own, but when her parents enter the final phase of their lives, she finds herself looking after them as well. Her father has become seriously senile and must be taken to a retirement home where he can receive constant care. Her mother, meanwhile, refuses to deal with her husband's incapacity and won't visit him at his retirement home. At the same time, she is attempting to maintain an independent existence as long as possible. As often happens, the healthier of the two passes away more quickly, in this meditation on death, old age, and families, based on an autobiography by Inez van Dulleman.
