Diagnosed with a rare form of Parkinson’s Disease, ailing theatrical legend Sir Michael Gifford is terminally ill. He’s also foul-mouthed, irascible, and highly resistant to the concept of allowing a full time care giver into his home. Out of sheer necessity but hardly convicted at the notion herself, Sir Michael’s daughter reluctantly brings in a candidate to interview for the job. Into this fraught household comes Dorottya, who is greeted coldly by Sophia and Michael’s estate manager and former lover Milly but nevertheless manages to convince them to allow her a chance.
