There is a day in most people's lives that causes them to grow up. One day John (Philip Seymour Hoffmann) and Wendy Savage (Laura Linney) receive a telephone call: their father Lenney (Philip Bosco) has just smeared the walls of his apartment with faeces. It raises many questions. How to take care of Daddy? How to deal with dementia? How to write a testament? A bittersweet Sundance success.
