A frail older woman, never married. Living in a large house that she has inherited. Her materials needs are met, but her days are lonely.
Health challenges have confined her to a wheelchair, and she is feeling increasingly isolated. Increasingly … useless.
Her life has very little meaning, and less pleasure. She wonders why she keeps going. And sometimes, very late at night, she considers simply … quietly saying good-bye.
But not today. Today she is having a visitor for tea, a friend of her nephew’s.
