Synopsis: An 80 year old man, Peter, gets diagnosed with Alzheimer's and struggles to cope with his new condition. His wife, Lucy, does the best she can to take care of him but worries about him constantly. As Peter dives into his memories before they disappear, he decides to try one last thing to keep his life and love for Lucy alive.
Peter decides to put together a scrapbook of his and Lucy’s life together, all of which trigger memories throughout the film.

This is a sweet romance meant to pull at the heart strings which will premier at the BFI Southbank in the summer as well as being submitted to any relevant festivals afterwards.

I am a student filmmaker who is looking to specialize in producing. Having thus far successfully produced two short films, I very much look forward to this one, my third.
