synopsis:

Linda is a full-time caregiver to her adult son Kevin, who has a congenital intellectual disability with concomitant autistic tendencies. (Yes, she wishes that was one word, too). With Kevin consuming her days, things like travel, relaxation, and even aging seem like luxuries that are out of her reach. But when Linda is offered an “out,” she begins to consider an alternative life for the first time- one without Kevin. With this decision comes panic attacks, unexpected visitors, and the occasional reckless daydream.
