A document of the poignant moment in the life of
Producer Tim Wilson's own mother, a daunting figure and
a once-accomplished pianist, now diagnosed with
Alzheimer's, when she is forced to leave her
apartment, her pearls, and her 'upright grand' to
enter 'a home.' Upright Grand turns into a
searching examination of the often ambiguous
relationship between a mother and son.
