Five million Americans suffer from Alzheimer’s disease and dementia—many of them alone in nursing homes. A man with a simple idea discovers that songs embedded deep in memory can ease pain and awaken these fading minds. Joy and life are resuscitated, and our cultural fears over aging are confronted.

SO MUCH LOVE.. this must be the most important film you'll ever watch from 2014, or maybe in a long time! There's just no words to describe the intensity of emotions this brings to anyone who sees it. There's a load of insight about the human condition that we have turned a blind-eye on for decades, again and again. It's an incredible eye-opener, a triumphant discovery to keep ourselves, ALIVE INSIDE.
