As her elderly father gradually loses his ability to be independent, Anne moves in with him, tending to his daily necessities. As he gradually loses grip on ‘reality’, more and more problems arise between parent and child. Shouldering filial love and her responsibility to family, Anne is under tremendous pressure.
