Cast: 1m., 3w. Winter is a funny, lyrical, yet harrowing look at old age. For five years since his stroke, Mark has been confined to a wheelchair. Miriam, his wife of 50 years, has worn herself out caring for him. Their marriage is fraying from the strain. But then the "wrong one" dies first and Mark finds himself in the nursing home he's always dreaded. Once Mark faces the worst thing he can imagine—Miriam's death and the home—he is surprised to discover that he can still enjoy the small joys in life. When Dotha, Mark's childhood girlfriend, is admitted to the home, she's so depressed she refuses to speak. This time it's Mark's turn to be the caregiver and help Dotha rediscover her own small joys. Two int. sets.
