About the film:
For 64 years, 92-year-old Mimi has cared for her daughter Dona, who has an intellectual disability, and now faces the inevitable: to find Dona a home. This alternately heartbreaking and heartwarming film by Mimi’s granddaughter tells the story of a quirky and deeply connected mother-daughter duo, and their effect on three generations of a Texas family.
