A 72-year-old grandmother dies and finds herself on a ferry which will take her across the river to the hereafter. On the ferryboat she meets her first love, who was killed in a road accident in which they were both involved when they were young. She is presented with a fateful choice: to start life afresh as a 22-year-old—her age at the time of the accident—and to relinquish all her memories of the life she has lived with her husband and children; or to remain a 72-year-old woman with all her life’s memories intact.
The theme of this year's film series at the Schlesinger Library is "Ages of Women." Films are shown in the Library's Radcliffe College Room the first Wednesday of the month at 6:00 p.m. and, when possible, are followed by a discussion session. Admission is free and open to the public. Please note that there is no screening in January.
