When called upon to take care of their 93-year-old grandmother, three brothers from Colima, Mexico, realize that the activities they take for granted become increasingly challenging with old age. Following the arrest of their father, the boys affectionately look after their grandmother América, while attempting to get him released from prison. Acknowledging that engaging their grandmother in adolescent pastimes might only serve their benefit, the brothers reflect on the reality of human finitude. They strengthen their unconditional bond and gain newfound wisdom as they navigate complicated family issues and juggle their new responsibilities. Discussion with Dr. Tim Short (UVA) and Dr. Cathy Campbell (UVA)

Supported by Melton D. and Muriel Haney Interprofessional Conference: Compassionate Care at the End of Life
