Synopsis

After a seventeen-year struggle with Parkinson’s disease, Judy’s life takes a turn when her husband dies of a heart attack on their remote property in Aleza Lake. Battling her grief, her body, and the isolation of her world, Judy fights to maintain control. Her eighteen year-old-son, Jamie, returns home from the harsh reality of Alberta’s oil fields, and mother and son carry on, finding respite in the everyday. But when a nasty fall on the ice forces them to confront the progression of Judy’s illness, they discover they must both accept their weakness in order to find their strength.
