Writer Statement

Losing your mind can feel like the end of the world - especially when the world is ending.

'Going' is a post-apocalyptic, drama short that takes a unique look at the fall out of early-onset dementia. Part road movie, part dystopian survival, part domestic drama.

Facing into the taboos of impaired brain function 'Going' challenges the narratives that dementia is exclusively an elderly impairment and that life is over once someone is diagnosed.

The film intimately explores the relationship between life partners coping with the heartbreaking nature of mental decline, set against the haunting backdrop of a global holocaust.
