Synopsis

After living in Chicago for over half a century, Lore, now aged 96, is moving to an assisted living residence in New York. The process is far from easy, neither for her nor her family. Returning to her mother’s story, 32 years after the release of “The Ties That Bind”, Su Friedrich takes on the role of narrator to face the challenges posed by alterity and aging. The mother says she cannot explain how she feels, but the daughter is willing to make an effort to stay by her side. (C. M.)
