At 75, Mary’s had a number of falls wandering outside the family compound, looking for a drink. Mary drinks to forget though she’s still able to recite by heart some of her lost poems to family who listen with love and admiration. Her determination to thwart Muscle, and his attempts to control her drinking, has led her son to take more drastic action.
