Ninety-two-year-old Edna Pearson considers family the bloodline. Edna has never accepted her son, Larry's, second wife and his stepdaughter's, Alicia and Lorraine, as family. When Larry, her last child, dies, Edna faces a lonely life, estranged from the only relations she has known for over two decades. But the tragedy of her son's death reunites her with her true family, her blood, her grandson, David, separated by a divorce thirty years earlier. With no one else to take on the responsibility for Edna's care, David steps in to assure her needs are met. As Edna's aging mind gives in to Alzheimer's, Edna finds herself increasingly reliving the happy and sad memories of her younger years through her Alzheimer's moments. When Alicia informs Edna of a family crisis, and reveals a life-long family secret, Edna is forced to confront her bias. After years of resentment, at this stage in life, can Edna find it in her heart to forgive and redefine her definition of family?
