Maggie, his widowed mother and devoted care-giver, is overwhelmed when, diagnosed with a terminal illness, she fears for the future wellbeing of her beloved son. In desperation, she turns to her close friend, Julie Carson, to help find an answer to the agonizing problem. Julie, a bank officer, is extremely fond of the friendly, gentle woman who frequently comes to her for financial advice. They usually end their meetings by enjoying a pleasant lunch together, happily sharing their thoughts, feelings and the many past experiences that have deeply affected their lives.
