After a hip injury as a result of a fall, Neil Woodard (played by Terry T. Smith - Best Actor Winner: Director's Chair Film Festival 2009) enters a nursing facility unhappy with the changes occurring in his life. Initially uncooperative and insistent that he will return home once he recovers, he deals with the reality of no longer being a priority in his family's life, but discovers comfort and friendship in the residents and staff. However, he soon learns that all may not be as it seems. Told from the perspective of the afflicted this is the story of one man's descent into the world of Alzheimer's dementia.
