Docu­men­tary about living with dementia, seen through the eyes of people suffering from the condi­tion. The eight resi­dents of the Iduna commu­nity in the De Bijster centre in Essen are in the first stage of the illness. Fits of lucidity, oblivion and absent-mind­ed­ness take constant turns. Some of them are painfully aware of the afflic­tion, other hardly realise their conscience is grad­u­ally crumbling.
