Story

This series focuses on a loved one in the advanced stages of Alzheimer's Disease. She cannot communicate, recognize her family, or express her emotions. She is totally dependent on her caretakers for existence. Despite the essentials that feed human interaction she is sought after, taken care of, and loved by her family as much as she was more than 10 years ago when she was in a perfect state of health and mind. In the end life is all about love and understanding that transcends the intellectual capacities of individuals.
