sad girls watch The Princess Bride
A woman and her mother gather together on every major holiday to watch The Princess Bride together. This tradition is one they have clung to steadfastly, but when the mother begins to deteriorate from dementia, the woman must come to terms with facing a world without her mother. A story of grief, loss, and the importance of ritual in our lives.
