Director Statement

Jacob N. Stuart statement: Dementia Awareness Week, 15 – 21 May. This film is meant to encourage people to confront and address Dementia throughout the world. We adamantly believe Dementia shouldn't be approached as an ending, but a new beginning. We hope this films sheds light on the stress and heartache Dementia brings on families, but with team effort, family support, and friends, we can battle this epidemic together. You are NOT alone.

This film is a tribute to my Grandma who suffers from severe Dementia.
