Forget Me Not

An aging man struggles with self-loss as dementia leads him down a path of confusion. An unexpected bond with his caregiver provokes past memories that he must reconcile.

Leo, a retired professor, receives daily home care from Lynn, his caregiver. But life becomes blurry as Leo struggles through his days, with memory loss and hallucinations. When Leo runs away, and throws sudden aggressive mood swings, Lynn realizes she may have bitten off more than she can chew. While she ponders leaving, Leo comes to a realization that can change everything between them. Leo must face his truth while he still can.
