A beautifully moving love story that deals with memory and the circuitous, unnamable paths of a long marriage. Married for 50 years, Grant (Gordon Pinsent) and Fiona's (Julie Christie) commitment to each other appears unwavering, and their everyday life is full of tenderness and humour. This serenity is broken only by the occasional, carefully restrained reference to the past, giving a sense that this marriage may not always have been such a fairy tale. As Fiona's memory lapses become more obvious and dramatic, it is no longer possible for either of them to ignore the fact that Fiona is suffering from Alzheimer's disease.
Eventually, Fiona decides that it is time for her to enter Meadowlake, a retirement home that specialises in the disease. Once there, Fiona turns her attention and affection to Aubrey (Michael Murphy), another resident in the home.
