Description

Dealing with a parent's illness can be difficult at any age It is 1967 and twelve year old Ruth Iverson's world pretty much revolves around her friends, a boy she likes, the Monkees and spending time with her Dad doing special stuff like watching the Toronto Maple Leafs win the Stanley Cup. But she is soon to realize that her mom's strange behaviour which has become an embarrassment, are symptoms of a disease that will affect the family's life and possibly Ruth's future. While she watches major events like the marriage of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, the birth of Priscilla Presley, the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy and Neil Armstrong walking on the moon, Ruth faces some major life events of her own and struggles to come to terms with the changes they bring.
