Two professional actors with Parkinson's disease put up an Off-Broadway production of Samuel Beckett's "Endgame," a play he wrote as a metaphor for living with the disease after his mother succumbed to Parkinson's. In the play, Beckett wrote, "There's nothing funnier than unhappiness;" this movie proves it. It also shows that when the body gives way, all that's left is soul.
