From Richard Strand, the author who penned the award-winning Butler comes a comic-drama about Emily Linder, an eccentric, retired university professor, who has come to the "realization" that she knows the exact day that she will pass away. She gathers her two daughters to her side to inform them of her imminent demise and to give each of them explicit instructions and ridiculous assignments to fulfill prior to her earthly departure—a warm family comedy about realizations, sibling rivalry, aging, and balloons.
The Realization of Emily Linder stars Marnie Andrews, Dana Benningfield, Corey Tazmania and Jenny Vallancourt.
