Character study about Mildred, an elderly woman who has spent her life caring for others. When her daughter finally leaves home, she finds that, for the first time in her life, she has nobody to worry about - but soon becomes involved in the life of Monica, a young mother whose husband has left her to look after her young son J.J.. As the relationship blossoms, Monica teaches Mildred that there is more to life than taking care of others.

Did You Know?
During production, Marisa Tomei
did not like driving the 1981 Pontiac Trans Am, which is the car that her character drives in the film. On the last day of shooting, she accidentally backed it into a telephone pole. She later said that the accident "wasn't her fault" and that the car was "a wreck, I should never have agreed to drive it". See more
