THE STORY: Edna has suffered losses as she has aged, and now she faces a late-life cancer diagnosis. Edna’s son, Andrew, is home for a visit. Together they try to bridge the gulf between the love they shared in his childhood and the polite but baffling relationship they now live with. Mother and son stumble toward honesty as they wrestle with the phantoms—both mundane and profound—that keep them from real connection.
