About this movie

They spent much of their lives taking care of us, now it's our turn. Emmy-nominated filmmaker Michelle Boyaner (HBO's Packed in a Trunk) shares her complex and devastatingly tender journey caring for her long-divorced aging parents-her mother Elaine, who abandoned the family and left then 19-year-old Michelle to help raise her 5 younger siblings and is now faced with dementia, and her father Morris, once a brilliant Aerospace Engineer and now a hoarder unable to navigate his own world.

Very heart warming film. Reminds us that there is still good people out there and shows that we can never be too old to laugh. 😁
