When hard-working mother of two Ann discovers she has terminal ovarian cancer and the doctors give her two months to live, she decides to keep the news from her family. Passing off her increasing weakness as a mild case of anemia, Ann begins to put her priorities in order in preparation for the last few months of her life. She records birthday messages for her daughters, visits her estranged father in prison and even seeks a replacement wife for her husband, Lee.

This film is a free screening hosted by the Friends of the South Orange Library.  It complements our series on Women Film Directors, but membership is not necessary to attend this screening.  There will be an introduction and discussion and refreshments will be served.
