Storyline

Pearl Simmons (Michelle Hurst, 'Orange is the New Black'), an aging jazz singer in brownstone Brooklyn, fights the early stages of Alzheimer's. While she presents a strong front to her daughter Cynthia (Melanie Nicholls-King, 'The Wire'), her sense of place and time begin to slip, and her memories of her days as a jazz singer in 1970s New York clash with the present. Cynthia, struggling to care for her mother, considers an offer to sell the family's home.

User Reviews

great work
9 September 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Two fundamental virtues - the storytelling and the performance of Michelle Hurst. Each important because the subject is more than delicate - dementia, in early form, of a great jazz singer. The clash of memories and reality. The decision of her daughter about future. The house created by her husband. And the show scenes. A touching, profound touching film. About past. And about a special fight for survive.
