About the Film: In this award-winning documentary directed by Alicia Dwyer and produced by Juli Vizza, we meet Phyllis and Joe Sabatini. At ages 89 and 90, they live at home with their daughter Sarah and granddaughter Jacqueline. But as the family struggles to make ends meet and the grandparents’ health problems escalate, they are forced to make a difficult decision. Determined to free Sarah from the burden of caring for everyone from “nine to ninety,” Phyllis decides to move 3,000 miles away to live with her other daughter, Angie. But this means parting from Joe, her husband of 62 years. The choice leads them all to consider: What does it take to live, love, and die with dignity and grace in the modern age?
