This film chronicles the final days of a 78-year-old woman (Sheila Florance) who is dying from lung cancer. Martha is independent and lively, making the most of her remaining time. Florance gives a wonderful performance, made all the more poignant by the fact that she herself was terminally ill.

"It's a special film, never maudlin or anything but honest, about facing adversity and doing it with courage and dignity."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Australian director Paul Cox has made a brave, bold, and life-affirming film about what Cicero called "our play's last act.""
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
