Family To-Do-List: Throw perfect eight-year-old’s birthday party, find wandering grandpa, and deal with cancer in the left boob.
Bailey and Drew are a 40-something couple much like other couples: They have two kids, two jobs, one dad with Alzheimer’s, and one boob with cancer. With only two weeks until daughter Scout’s eighth birthday party, Bailey just wants to shorten her massive ‘to do’ list. Despite her condition, strong-willed Bailey shuffles through countless errands, teaches a weekly Boot Camp class, and starts a bar fight during a girls’ night out. Ever-supportive Drew works extra side jobs all while encouraging Bailey to relax and let him ‘fix’ things. But Bailey doesn’t want to be ‘fixed,’ and an eye-opening moment with her ten-year-old son makes Bailey come to life-altering changes. A brilliant blend of humor and raw emotion, directors Doug and Brooke Purdy (who also happen to be the stars) do what few films about cancer do: make us feel good about life.
