Acclaimed actress Laura Linney stars in this comedy-drama as Minneapolis schoolteacher Cathy Jamison, whose reserved, structured way of life is turned upside down after she is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Gone are the days of pleasing everyone else; now, for the first time in her life, she is going to choose the path that most suits her needs. And that means, in part, telling her immature husband, spoiled son and outspoken brother to grow up. Cathy, meanwhile, wants to act up ... and along the way she forms new bonds with some unexpected people.
