Having just scared off his recent caregiver, Anthony, (Anthony Hopkins)

an ailing, octogenarian Londoner gradually succumbing to dementia, feels

rapid, heart-rending mental decline, Anthony is starting to lose his

grip on reality, struggling to navigate the opaque landscape of present

and past.

swings, dear ones, Anthony’s surroundings, and even time itself become


Why has his younger daughter stopped visiting?
