A slice-of-life true-story-based film on growing old and in love. When on his own land, Craig Morrison (played by James Cromwell) starts building a more convenient house for his ailing wife Irene (Geneviève Bujold), he is faced with crippling bureaucracy. He is then given the choice between stopping the construction or going to jail, while at the same time witnessing his wife’s health deteriorating even further. The act of going against the system exposes both how beautiful his relationship his wife is, as well as his own resilience in this moving, insightful drama.
