moreTo the outside observer, Ally Jackson has it all. However, the stress of entering medical school, relationship troubles, and maintaining the illusion of perfection has worn her tissue thin. In a desperate attempt to clear her mind, Ally ventures off campus where she runs into Clara O’Bryan, an older woman with unparalleled spunk and a steely resolve. As the women spend the afternoon chatting on a park bench, Clara shares stories about her life, from serving as a triage nurse in Vietnam to becoming a great-grandmother. As Ally helps Clara complete a deeply personal mission, she realizes that the greatest lessons are seldom taught in a lecture hall.
