Family love triumphs over Alzheimer's and multiple sclerosis as a spunky Irish immigrant, "new to Alzheimer's" joins forces with her daughter, who is livign with MS, to make a cup of tea.

Undaunted by physical and mental challenges, mother and daughter celebrate family connections, kindness and caring in their joint efforts at tea time. Above all, humour at the absurdity of the teamwork required for this endeavour offers inspiration in facing life's challenges with laughter and warmheartedness.
