André gradually loses his ability to be independent. His daughter Anne decides to move him in with her and her boyfriend to live together, tending to daily necessities. Suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, André vacillates between humorous disposition and state of confusion.“Reality” slowly dissolves in his mind, creating tremendous tensions in daily life among the family members. Anne is under enormous pressure.Will she make an “appropriate” decision when she is compelled to? Will André be able to survive after all the struggles?
