Produced by: K.M. Glaess
An aging housewife must decide whether to put her husband in a nursing home.
This film was inspired by my Chinese American grandmother, who spent her life devoted to her husband and never seemed to desire anything more than the humble life of a housewife.
As I was raised to be a feminist and a fiercely independent woman, I have always struggled to understand my grandmother's choices. I made this film as a way of exploring her story, and in the process, I discovered her strength.
