With humor and heart, this film explores not only the frustrations and fears, but also the transformative bonds that happen when familial roles are reversed.  They spent much of their lives taking care of us, now it’s our turn. Emmy-nominated filmmaker Michelle Boyaner (HBO’s Packed in a Trunk) shares her complex and devastatingly tender journey caring for her long-divorced aging parents. A diverse mix of other families are also woven in, each with their own unique challenges. You’ll meet Esther, an entertainer whose daughters bring love and laughter to her last act, and Mike, who helps his mother Florence while raising teenagers as s single father.
