Dot was once bold, strong & in control of her life.  Since her stroke, though still strong in mind, her body betrays her daily.  Liz; Dot's middle-aged daughter, is solely responsible for her mother's care & has sacrificed her own career & ambitions for the exhausting battle of appointments, pills, bills, chores & repeated demands to help her mother.  Both Dot & Liz are struggling to hear & be heard, to see & be seen.  Their world shrinks inwards as each month passes, leaving Dot dancing on the edge of the decision to set them both free.
