BASED ON A TRUE STORY
"We Promised" is the true and touching story of Mae, an elderly woman suffering from Dementia. Her two daughters Jamie and Alisa team with Cathy (a hired care-giver) and work together to find the most dignified answer to the many problems Mae is now facing. Mae's one desire is to stay in her own home until the very end but problems surmount as the disease progresses and nothing seems simple any more, except their hope.
"We Promised" is an amazing true story of one families love and respect for their mother/grandmother and the deep yet professional bond that quickly develops between Cathy the Care-giver and her client Mae. Cathy is sent in as a worker from an In-Home-Health agency to care for Mae and in only five short weeks Cathy and the family watch as Mae spirals from a fully functioning, central hub of a large rural family to death. In that short time Mae loses everything, and yet in some unique and deeply moving way, the family gains everything; things that make the word "family" truly meaningful. The story documents the passing of the last five weeks of Mae's life, one week at a time, and shows not only the decline of Mae but also the strong legacy of love and interrelationship between family members and the love of a Care-giver that really did care.
"We Promised" is a family film by the multiple Award winning producers - Golden Eagle Films.
