In this powerful drama we meet two troubled women: Alida, a fiction writer in her 60s, and Beth, a nurse’s aide in her late 20s, one of whom needs the other with a not-entirely-healthy urgency. Beth does her utmost to insinuate herself into the life of the famous Alida, a recluse who is battling the onset of Alzheimer’s. We see episodes from Alida’s childhood in several flashbacks, and the more we witness, the more disturbing become the parallel backgrounds of the two women – they are both lost in a strange forest in a perilous fairy tale, searching for breadcrumbs to find their way home.
