Away from Her

Away from Her

It's never too late to become what you might have been
  • Looks all downhill from here...

After 50 happy years of marriage, a couple come to realise that the wife's 'forgetfullness' is actually Alzheimer's Disease. Reluctanctly they book her into a nursing home, and for the first time since their marriage, they are forced to be apart for 30 days. This is tough on the husband, but worse is yet to come. When he visits her after the month is up, he finds that she no longer remembers him, and is instead in love with a wheelchair-bound mute. Determined to win her back, he faces agonising choices in finding happiness for the love of his life.
