This piece is a powerful portrayal of a family struggling with its demons. A mother trapped in the depilating world of Alzheimers , a daughter trapped in the limited existence of caring for her ill mother and a son trapped in a futile marriage. Yet in their world, there is a humour and compassion lived out in the shared experience of these unforgettable characters.
