Character descriptions

Synopsis: Stella and Dot, an elderly lesbian couple, have been together for 31 years and have faithfully accompanied one another through life's ups and downs. Now in their seventies, Stella is hard of hearing and Dot is diabetic and legally blind. After Dot suffers a fall, her naive granddaughter, Molly, decides the best place for Dot is a nursing home that will provide all the necessities, effectively separating the couple. This forces Stella and Dot to make a bold decision: they will leave their New England hometown and make their way to Canada, where same-sex marriage is legal. It's a last-gasp bid to stay together. En route to Canada, they pick up a young hitchhiker, Prentice. A small-town boy turned modern dancer, he is returning to Nova Scotia to visit his dying mother. Despite his bravado, Prentice is a confused and wounded soul who has much to learn from Stella and Dot as they wage their own unexpected battle - after three decades, can they keep their family together?
