The battery of her Chrysler conked out in the parking lot of the Carlsbad Senior Center, where Edye Russell dropped anchor almost three weeks ago. The gas tank is flat empty. One tire is low, and the air mattress leaks. Russell falls asleep hoping she’ll be safe through the night, and trying to figure out how to get back to the life she had.
