In this timely and provocative drama, Carmen, the wife of an entertainment legend, is interviewing a nurse, Lisa, to supervise the care of her husband, who is in the final stages of Alzheimer’s. In the process, the questioner becomes the questioned as Lisa confronts Carmen with sexual assault accusations against her husband and with her complicity in the alleged incidents.
