1. Justin has always managed to escape his own story. But his past catches up with him when he discovers his father’s VHS recordings and sees his mother as he’s never seen her before - young and healthy. When Justin was four, a brain stroke left her partially paralyzed and unable to speak. Seeing the mother he longed to have in his father’s recordings triggers him to confront his family’s misfortunes. With his father dead, his mother is the only person he can turn to for answers. While she struggles to communicate with the help of a computer, she is sharp and witty. Justin begins to draw the connection between the mother he longed to have and the woman in the wheelchair.
