Garden of Life
A different film about Alzheimer's.
When 82-year old Leo, the filmmaker’s father-in-law, starts to lose control of his life due to the onset of Alzheimer’s, he desperately tries to maintain a grip on the small world of his back garden. Every day he inspects all the changes, touches leaves and removes everything that should make way for new growth. But the garden is running wild. And the seasons are going by.
