Emotional drama. Fiona and her long-term husband Grant live a cocooned life in a country house in Canada, but the onset of Fiona's Alzheimer's threatens to disrupt their idyll. As her condition deteriorates, Fiona fears becoming a burden to Grant and convinces him to check her into a care home. Grant is not allowed to visit her for the first 30 days, and when he finally does he finds that Fiona has come to barely recognise him and has formed an emotional attachment to another patient.
