Kate is a classical pianist just diagnosed with ALS. Bec is a brash college student and would-be rock singer who can barely keep her wildly chaotic affairs, romantic and otherwise, together. Yet, when Bec takes a job assisting Kate, just as Kate's marriage to Evan hits the skids, both women come to rely on what becomes an unconventional, sometimes confrontational and fiercely honest bond. As meticulous, willful Kate begins to rub off on whirlwind, spontaneous Bec - and vice versa - both women find themselves facing down regrets, exploring new territory and expanding their ideas of who they want to be.Written by

I know it's not my place, because I'm not the one who has this thing, but... please don't give up.
That's the thing about giving up, you don't realize you've done it until it's to late.

First of all to the person that wrote the review that it was a 4.7 chick flick! I really don't believe you even saw the movie or you could not have written what you did!!!
This was a fantastic, very well done deeply gratifying movie! The STARS played their parts very well! And yes I am a guy! I could not have asked for anything better! ALS is a very debilitating disease and this shows what people who live with it everyday has to go through!Not only the patient, but also the surrounding people! This movie portrays the life they go through very well! You won't be disappointed if you see this movie!
