Back cover: "In this acclaimed film Deborah Hoffmann gradually realizes that her aging mother's confusion and forgetfulness is something more - Alzheimer's Disease. With profound insight and a great deal of humor, this documentary reveals the various stages of her mother's disase and the evolution of her own response to the illness. The desire to cure the incurable finally gives way to an acceptance which is liberating for both mother and daughter. Neither depressing nor medical, this film is much more than a story about Alzheimer's. It is ultimately a life-affirming exploration of family relations, aging and change, the meaning of memory and love."
