Ruth Stone was a promising young poet, living an idyllic life with her beloved husband Walter Stone, a poet and professor when he died by suicide in 1959. A published poet herself, Ruth found a way to continue writing while raising her three young daughters and teaching at universities around the country as an itinerant poet. Nora Jacobson chronicles Stone’s heroic life story as a poet, mother, and teacher in a film that leaves its viewers inspired, enlightened, entertained, and uplifted. “An intimate and revealing portrait of an earthy, elegant woman… Jacobson captures beautiful moments with the nonagenarian Stone…” —The Montpelier Bridge
