Memory is a funny thing. The holidays are always a wild family affair at the Shealy house. But this year, as Dot struggles to hold on to her memory, her adult children grapple with how to balance care for their mother and care for themselves. Filled with laughter and heartbreak, uproariously funny yet emotionally tender, Dot is a testament to the enduring bonds of family. Contains adult themes and strong language.


It’s part of our tradition – to confront tragedy with comedy, to laugh to keep from crying. I love the characters, their humanity, their candor, and sense of humor… there’s obviously a lot of love between them.
