The film features bestselling author Sir Terry Pratchett who, in 2005, noticed he started making a lot of typographical errors in his writing. He began having difficulties following text, and had problems dressing himself.

In 2008, Sir Terry began attending RICE having been diagnosed with a rare form of dementia. The charity have helped him find the best treatment for his condition and continue to support him.
