This is a story about how a man who refuses all assistance from his daughter as he begins to suffer from the overwhelming and unnerving symptoms of dementia.
As he tries to make sense of his ever-changing circumstances, he begins to doubt his loved ones, his own mind and even the fabric of his reality. 

Having just scared off his recent caregiver, Anthony, an aging Londoner gradually succumbing to dementia, feels abandoned when his concerned daughter tells him she’s moving to Paris.
Confused and upset, against the backdrop of a warped perspective and his rapid mental decline, Anthony is starting to lose his grip on reality.

Struggling to navigate the opaque landscape of present and past, as faded memories and glimpses of lucidity trigger sudden mood swings, dear ones, Anthony’s surroundings, and even time itself become distorted.
Why has his younger daughter stopped visiting? Who are the strangers that burst in on Anthony?

Anthony Hopkins’ Oscar winning performance gives us a close-up experience of what it’s like to be an Alzheimer’s patient, as well as a caregiver.
