In a culture that relegates the work of caring for the dying to strangers and institutions, this documentary offers an intimate portrayal of what it means to be a lifelong partner. Shar Jones, a transgender person, decides to cease eating and drinking after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Shar’s wife, Cynthia, manages the daily needs of a languishing body while she grapples with the implications of Shar’s impending farewell. At once quiet and startling, the film grants us the honor to gently walk side by side into an uncertain void with this charming couple. As Shar nears death, Cynthia approaches the end of her time as her partner. Their commitment to navigating this chapter on their own terms displays unparalleled grace and courage. -KM
