7/8ths of the Way There

Meet George and Kathy. He’s a quirky, fun loving, terminally ill man preparing for penile implant surgery, and she’s a deep-thinking workaholic who wants to plan for their uncertain future. With the clock ticking and nothing to distract from his prognosis, George reflects on the family he’s loved and lost, from the father who fondled him to the daughter whose ashes he spread, while Kathy begins to face the inevitability of a life without the man and the work she loves. Imbued with humour, this meditative look at a marriage facing mortality shares universal questions of loss, love, death, and sex, all through the eyes of a curious couple on the way to accepting the end.
