Filmmaker Sian-Pierre Regis explores the themes of ageism, elder care and economic insecurity as he charts the journey he took to help his 75-year-old mother after she is fired from her lifelong job in the documentary "Duty Free." Feeling abandoned and frightened after losing her job overseeing a hotel's housekeeping department, Rebecca Danigelis, a single immigrant mother, allows her son to talk her into joining him on a series of bucket-list adventures that help her reclaim her future.
