Estelle Parsons and Luci Arnaz starred on Broadway in this charmer set in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Grace, a feisty 90 year old cancer patient, has checked herself out of the hospital and returned to her beloved homestead cottage to die alone. The volunteer hospice worker that appears with the pain medication Grace willfully left behind, is a Harvard MBA, and recently transplanted to this rural backwater from New York. Glorie is tense, unhappy and guilt ridden, her only child was killed in an auto accident while she was driving. As Glorie attempts to care for and comfort the cantankerous rustic, this sophisticated urbanite gains new perspectives on values and life's highs and lows.
