NotesDelightful low-beat story of a woman left widowed and looking to support herself and hold onto her house. She decides to use her home to care for people with Alzheimers. An everyday story of folks with Alzheimers unmelodramatically told. Towards the end she takes her 'guests' to Galveston to see the sea. An ambition she was unable to fulfill with her husband. Based on the true story of Peggy Lee of Camilla, Texas.
