Steve Grad as Gunner Concannon

“Quality of life. Kiss my ass.”
Gunner is in his early 70s but is still a

lifetime of being in charge of his
trucking company, his family, and
everyone around him, he struggles
with losing control of his future as his
memory leaves him.

Caught in middle of his parents’

with his estranged father.

Peg is an energetic, good-looking

of being his caregiver and worrying
about their futures is wearying.
