Filomena M. Sanchez is a 68 year old Hispanic female who immigrated to Boston from Puerto Rico a year ago following the death of her husband. She has a history of hypertension, peripheral vascular disease, coronary artery disease, elevated cholesterol, and degenerative joint disease in both knees. She has had a Left MCA stroke, has been through in-patient rehabilitation, and is now at home.

In the film, a physical therapist is visiting Ms. Sanchez. They meet in her kitchen and a neighbor is there to translate because Ms. Sanchez only understands Spanish and has lost her ability to speak.
