In this documentary we follow Joeri, former copywriter. But unfortanutly at the age of 61 he was diagnosed with Lewy Body, a form of dementia that also involves hallucinations and symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Despite his dementia, he is still known for his creativity, ability to relate and his extaordinary view of the world. He also looks at his dementia from the positive side as much as possible. In his own words, it has given him more freedom in his creative development. Writing and painting are now different than before, as if he has “discovered a new language and style”. He wants to show the world what is still possible when you have dementia, how much fun life can still be. But it is not always so cheerful. Sadness and powerlessness play a big role in his environment. His two sons, Abel (23) and Jim (19), are slowly losing their father and Annet her lover. What impact does dementia have on the family dynamic, and what awaits them in the near future?
