Synopsis:
Schoolteacher Brian (Alan Bates) and his wife Sheila (Janet Suzman) are the parents of young Jo (Elizabeth Robillard), a child afflicted with cerebral palsy. Caring for Jo threatens to overwhelm their lives, and to stay sane they rely on dark humour. But while Sheila tries to ensure that her daughter has some quality of life, Brian is increasingly obsessed with the idea that she might be better off dead... Their bleak lives are further complicated by friends Freddie (Peter Bowles) and Pam (Sheila Gish) and Brian's dotty mother Grace (Joan Hickson) - each of whom have their own views on what would be best for Jo...
