Summary
Alzheimer's is a disease that affects not only the patient, but all who love and care for that person as well. This poignant program allows a rare glimpse into one couple's experience with the fatal illness that tore their life apart, tracking the mental deterioration of Malcolm Pointon-husband, father, Cambridge professor, and gifted pianist, diagnosed at only 51 years of age. The documentary sympathetically yet unflinchingly chronicles Malcolm's descent into dementia and his wife Barbara's unyielding commitment to be there "in sickness and in health.
