Seeing the mother he longed to have in his father’s recordings triggers him to confront his family’s misfortunes. With his father dead, his mother is the only person he can turn to for answers. While she struggles to communicate with the help of a computer, she is sharp and witty. Justin begins to draw the connection between the mother he longed to have and the woman in the wheelchair.
