  • "Nine to Ninety is the love story of Phyllis and Joe Sabatini, who at age 89 and 90 live in the home of their daughter and her husband, relishing time with their young granddaughter Jacqueline. But as their health problems escalate, Phyllis becomes determined to free her daughter from the burden of caring for everyone from nine to ninety. When Phyllis makes a difficult decision to move 3,000 miles away to live with their other daughter, she faces parting from Joe after 62 years. Challenging taboos about death, plainspoken Phyllis sets in motion a process of saying goodbye that shakes up and engages her whole family. Phyllis and her family's surprising choices about end-of-life care ignite both personal reflection and urgent conversations about how to age with dignity in America"--
