Review
Married, and living in Ontario, for almost 50 years septuagenarians Grant and Fiona's commitment to each other appears unwavering, but Fiona has Alzheimer's disease. As her condition deteriorates the mutual decision is made that, for her own safety, she needs to live (and die) in a specialist nursing home. Once there, though, she 'forgets' Grant and transfers her emotions to an elderly male sufferer. Heartbroken Grant woos the old lady, but she remains emotionally distant from him. It is on meeting the wife of Fiona's new 'boyfriend' that options open for Grant, can he live life alone or will he be better off with a new companion and just the memories of a healthy loving Fiona?
