Alzheimer's: A Love Story

DIRECTORS: Monica Petruzzelli, Gabe Schimmel

Those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s live an average of eight years after their symptoms first become noticeable—it’s been 12 years for Greg. He lives at a memory care facility in Chicago and can no longer live independently. Every day a man named Michael comes and visits for a couple of hours. No one can say for sure if Greg knows who Michael is or why he comes every day, but it seems he does. From Michael’s point of view it’s only natural that Greg appears to know him—after all, Michael has loved Greg since the day they met 40 years ago.
