Last Bloom, The

Gentle, soft-spoken Cynthia moves into a nursing home to share a room with the cantankerous and domineering Myrtle. But before Cynthia can settle in, a power struggle takes place as the women battle over the right to each other's pasts and memories. The Last Bloom blurs the line between truth and fantasy and explores the idea of the right to reshape one's past.
