Plot & Details

This excellent docudrama is an affecting dramatization of the decline of an Alzheimer's victim and the emotional and psychological toll his fatal illness takes on his family. Bob Millard (Len Cariou) is an active outdoorsman, he is strong and healthy and vibrant with life when the symptoms of Alzheimer's first begin to appear. His wife Susanne (Shirley Jones) and his daughter Jenny (Cynthia Eilbacher) gradually begin to realize that something is wrong, and Bob's condition is soon diagnosed. Over the next eight years, the mother and daughter suffer the gradual loss of their friends (who just stop visiting), and personal tensions mount as Bob deteriorates. This is an information-packed dramatization that pulls no punches.
