Q: Park Brake on 1990 Honda Civic

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
The brake handle lifts way up, past perpendicular, and there is no braking action that occurs with applying the park brake. What is likely wrong, and what would be the cost of making my park brake functional?

The rear brakes and park brake need to be inspected but I would suspect that the handbrake cable has failed or at the least become detached at one of the rear brake shoes. Replacing the cable and inspecting the brakes probably 1.2 hours cable about $60.
