A Day in the Death of Jo Egg

Details

Synopsis

Bri, a schoolteacher, and his wife, Sheila, have a ten-year-old child named Josephine, who has cerebral palsy. She is completely helpless and utterly dependent. Bri hides behind irony and sarcasm. Sheila believes the child is her penance for a promiscuous past and soldiers on devotedly with their little “Joe Egg.” Well-meaning family and friends offer sundry solutions, everything from adoption to euthanasia, but ultimately Bri finds he cannot continue and leaves Sheila and Joe behind.
