A moving comedy about the end, but the real question is who’s end is it?
A middle-aged curmudgeon, Kemp comes to visit an old aunt on the basis of a letter she sent him saying she’s dying. He’s her only living relative, and so he gives up his minor position in a minor savings and loan to sit vigil in her dusty attic-like room through her death. Despite Kemp’s offers to guide her through the pearly gates, she just won’t die.
