It’s 1969 and Gilda is es­tranged from her son Reuben af­ter walk­ing out on him when he was a small boy. She’s never for­given her­self, yet she yearns for a nor­mal mother-son re­la­tion­ship. Now grown-up, Reuben mar­ries Al­ice who’s ev­ery­thing Gilda isn’t, and who re­ceives the love from her son that Gilda craves. What does Al­ice have that she doesn’t, and how far will Gilda go to find out? A mov­ing story about the fragility of love and re­la­tion­ships.
