I REMEMBER...

The intense experience of a woman and her family as they come to terms with the early onset of Alzheimer's. The protagonist struggles with the gradual loss of identity and lack of control over her own life. Her husband and daughter deal with the strenuous journey of caring and their own dilemma between love, responsibility and aspiration. Hopes, ambitions and dreams often fade away as their lives get disrupted in the absence of adequate institutional, social and emotional support.
