After the sudden death of her grandfather, a young woman learns to juggle her own life with her new found responsibilities as the primary caregiver for her mother, who struggles for her own independence as her multiple sclerosis progresses.
Nerves is a story of love, family, and dignity— and a reminder that if a woman with a cane says she doesn’t want your help climbing the streetcar steps, she doesn’t want your help. (fringetoronto.com)
