However, upon seeing a neurologist, she discovers that she has early onset Alzheimer’s Disease, a condition for which there is no cure. She is constantly losing her memories, her identity and her ability to recognize her loved ones. Forced to live in the moment, Alice discovers a life without memory or hope, one that is at once beautiful and alarmingly maddening.
