Karen’s mother Ann suffers a devastating stroke that brings her back home when she least expects it. But Karen isn’t the only one who returns to help care for Ann in the crisis. Her prodigal father Ian, endearing and unfathomable, and who has been separated from Ann for years, also reappears. Armed with her camera, Karen seizes this last chance to go under the skin of the family story before it’s too late to come to terms with the aftermath of the secret her father had tried and failed to keep from them all, and to find that Ann’s stroke has in fact thrown them all a life raft.
