A comedy about life in the “last” lane When Diane visits her great-aunt Clara, Clara realizes Diane is reaching an age at which she can actually begin to see the bigger picture of life. So she starts telling Diane what she really thinks. About humanity. Youth. Life. Aging. Rage. Family. This is not what Diane expected from the afternoon. With the arrival of Edward, the UPS delivery guy, the dialogue and memories shift to marriage, sensuality, passion, sexual violence and desire. The final frontier of life, the distant galaxy of aging, is not for the faint of heart
