The Farewell takes place in a single day, toward the end of famed German playwright Bertolt Brecht's life, as Brecht prepares to leave his lakeside home and return to Berlin for the fall theater season. Surrounded by the women who form his extended family, he's the center of a quiet storm: nostalgia and hope, jealousy and tenderness, betrayal and trust vie with one another during the final act of his life.
