Libby (Bette Davis) and Sarah (Lillian Gish), two sisters facing the twilight years, ruminate on the paths they've taken in this fascinating drama showcasing a pair of actresses who've delivered some of cinema's golden moments. Although she's blind, Libby shows not an inch of weakness, even as she's cared for by the more forgiving Sarah. Every August, they await the return of migrating whales that grace the coastal area by their home in Maine.
