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.
