Summary If we're lucky, our parents live long enough to entrust us with protecting and caring for them. But the adult caregiver doesn't always feel so lucky-the burdens of decision making, of remaining involved and vigilant, are often overwhelming. What happens if this hardship becomes unmanageable? How can we best look after and safeguard our aging loved ones without losing a grip on our own lives in the process? This film brings those challenges into the light as it depicts what draws us closer to our elders, as well as what separates them from us, as they enter their final years. Both nursing home and home care options are discussed as the film explores four European family histories in which difficult choices had to be made. Even as these case studies point to hard logistical realities, they also evoke the raw emotional pathways that anyone caring for elders must inevitably navigate.
