Special Guest Appearance: Jesus Trejo & Julie Getz
For Jesus Trejo, stand-up comedy is both a dream and an escape from the heavy demands of caring, full-time, for his aging parents.
Undeterred, Trejo funnels his experiences as a caregiver into disarmingly funny material for his stand-up routine. With tenderness and lots of humor, this heartwarming film sheds light on the increasingly common reality many adults face as their parents grow older.
Directed by Julie Getz
