When her mother gets diagnosed with ALS, musician Kathryn Calder takes on an intensely personal recording project.

When the unthinkable happens, musician Kathryn Calder sets aside touring with her bands The New Pornographers and Immaculate Machine to care for her mother, who is dying of ALS. Inspired to make something beautiful amidst the trauma of this long, painful goodbye, Kathryn transforms their living room into a studio. With her mother in bed just down the hall and her condition worsening every day, Kathryn records her first ever solo album – filling the house with music, and creating a parting gift for her biggest fan. Also highlighting the story of baseball legend Lou Gehrig, A Matter of Time is a heart-breaking yet hopeful journey into the power of love and music, and the salvation and possibility found in the most challenging moment of a young musician’s life.
