The Squashed Bologna: a slice of life in the sandwich generation

Visiting her elderly, recently widowed mother, Varda finds her in bed and they spend sweet simple time together. Varda tells her mother how her kids are doing (including the one with Autism), and they joke about how impossible it is to find a man to replace her father in her mother’s life. Finally, they take a nap together.
