synopsis
JENNIFER ROBERTS has a full life: a corporate executive husband, two young daughters and a teaching career she enjoys. When she discovers her mother is struggling to care for her dying father, she returns to the MacAulay household to help. She sees her mother hide something in the base of the old clock, and unease about her parents' unconventional relationship resurfaces. The secret she uncovers calls into question her view of her parents and of herself. Grappling with impending death, each recalls the past. Their memories differ; some are unreliable, others are contrived. Love is a constant, but it comes at a price.
