Synopsis:
Maxine is coping with Alzheimer’s disease and doesn’t want to move into a nursing home, but when she meets Joe, her outlook begins to change.  Joe is a widower who shares her affliction, as well as her love for dance.  Although the two clash when lucid, their hazy memories overlap and they begin an affair that rejuvenates and fulfills them.  Can these lovers — played simultaneously by two senior actors and two younger actors — stay together?  This is a story about family, love, and remembering.
