Jenene says it all. Heartbreaking. All by herself, trapped in a wheel chair, mocked by the gaiety of the "ristorante" poster behind her, she can only retreat into unconsciousness. Her little drink is untouched. The starkness of the white wall is terrifying. There is nothing there for her. Nothing.

This is breaking my heart - it's everything we ever dread about growing old. You don't romanticize this in the least - it's very powerful Mo.
