After her mother’s death, award-winning filmmaker Judith Helfand, spends months sorting through boxes and belongings. She finds home videos of Jewish holidays, family celebrations, and of time spent with her mother, Florence. As she struggles to say goodbye, Helfand embarks on a new chapter--adopting a child and embracing single motherhood at 50. Suddenly she must deal with her own “stuff,” clearing out boxes to make space for a child, undergoing gastric sleeve surgery, and considering mother-daughter relationships from a new perspective. A generous and personal story about triumphant recovery, memories, and family.
