Dinah and Bill, a conservative Christian Midwestern couple who are still recovering from the loss of their daughter, have decided to visit their left-leaning cousins, Jeannette and Neil, who lost their house and everything they owned in a wildfire. Now living in a yurt on the scorched site of their former home, Neil faces a terminal illness with a pragmatic and grief-defying Zen approach.
When Dinah and Bill arrive for lunch, Jeannette and Neil’s stubborn equanimity is replaced by the perfect storm. The Quality of Life takes on tough socio-political questions and personalizes them with questions about morality, self-righteousness and our right to live and die by our own design.
Written and directed by Jane Anderson
