Grace is a feisty elderly cancer patient who has checked herself out of the hospital & returned to her beloved homestead cottage to die alone. Gloria, her volunteer hospice worker, is a tense, unhappy, Harvard MBA recently transplanted to here from New York. As she attempts to care for and comfort cantankerous Grace, the sophisticated Gloria gains new perspectives on values and life’s highs and lows. Just who is taking care of whom?
