As soon as Kitty Bruce, 91, moves in with Chester MacFarlane, 89, Chester informs her they have six months to get up to Longwood, an expensive assisted-living community. But Kitty is not ready to move again; her undies are still in Tupperware, she’s wearing the wrong color stockings because she can’t find her navy ones, and she can’t afford Longwood anyway if she continues to support her 55-year-old daughter, and she insists on doing that. Chester tries talking sense to her and gets a glimpse into a strange family dependency that, on second glance, look downright unsavory.
