Storyline

Joan and Tom have been married for many years. There is an ease to their relationship which comes from spending a lifetime together, a depth of love which expresses itself through tenderness and humour.

User Reviews

Real and raw
16 April 2020 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells the mundane lives of a married couple, until their world is smashed by cancer. The plethora of emotions are portrayed very well. It is real, raw and very moving. I can relate to every scene, as they look like real life.
