This portrait of the relationship between the filmmaker and his grandmother will be a resource for those who work with the elderly. Ryan has been out of touch with his family, and especially his grandmother whom he hasn't seen in fifteen years... until his grandfather's funeral reconnects them. She is lonely though feisty, and suffering from dementia; he is struggling to find his place in the world. Like other Jewish grandmothers, she expresses concern that "he make something of himself." The intermingling of these two generations proves touching and funny. The film is a vivid character study of a strong minded lady in her declining years, caught between reality and delusions, never pitiable, capable of affection, still vain, and still living independently.
