Jessie doesn't want to listen to her eccentric mom,
but the more she is forced to spend time with her,
the more sound her advice becomes.

IN PASSAGE, JESSIE LOSES HER JOB, APARTMENT, AND SHE AND HER YOUNG DAUGHTER, ALONG WITH THEIR OLD CAT, MUST MOVE BACK TO HER GYPSY MOM’S PLACE; A TRAILER BUILT FOR TWO. AS THEY CONTEMPLATE AGE AND PRIORITIES, AN UNEXPECTED EVENT LEAVES THEM SCRAMBLING FOR A WAY TO DEAL WITH LIFE’S JOURNEY. IN THE END, THEY DISCOVER, LIFE IS ALL ABOUT HOW YOU CHOOSE TO TEND YOUR GARDEN.
