Distant Relations

Distant Relations is the story of Vera, an elderly woman, as she waits for her children to arrive for a family reunion. She is plagued by a bad heart and disturbing memories. During her weak spells, she recalls past events of her life, a litany of tragedies: brutal accidents, loss of both parents, cruel treatment at the hands of her aunt, an unhappy marriage, poverty, loss of a lover, children she hardly knows. – Donna Doyle
