We All Want Impossible Things

Edith and Ashley, best friends for over 42 years, have experienced everything together, from childhood antics to adult challenges. Sadly, their bond is tested as Edith faces terminal ovarian cancer and hospice care. As Ashley grapples with the impending loss of Edith, she also struggles with a complex personal life including her daughters, an ambiguous relationship with her ex-husband, friends, and fleeting romantic encounters.

As they reminisce to the backdrop of “The Fiddler on the Roof” soundtrack, they confront the reality of letting go, while Ashley deals with her own imperfect journey as a friend, wife, and parent.
