Synopsis

Three pairs of women, across three different time periods in the life of one of those women - Angela.

48 years ago, Angela was 7 years old and facing the prospect of starting at a new school again, because her mother Ruth's career demanded the family move. Ruth is having a hard time negotiating with Angela to get her out the door to her first day of school.

40 years ago, Angela is 15, and helping her friend Brenna face up to the teenage bullies at school.

In the present, Angela and Brenna are both 55, and it's Brenna's turn to help Angela face the hard reality of Ruth's funeral.

The script moves back and forth across time, offering tiny snapshots of the way we give each other courage, and the way strength is passed down from one generation to the next.
