World premiere. Steven’s mother is caught between life and death, and he doesn’t know how to help her. Who’s not letting go, and why? This naturalistic drama takes place in the kitchen of a residential hospice. Sharing stories, laughter and tears, Steven’s quirky family struggles and hopes for a good goodbye. Two hospice volunteers help them cope with a situation no one can prepare for. An intimate look at the mysteries that can bring us together or tear us apart.
