Where Do Lilacs Come From

Directed by:Matthew Thorne

Chris, an elderly Alzheimer’s sufferer, is confined to his home. His son, Michael, is his primary caregiver. For months Chris’s mind has been fading away and along with it, his grasp on reality. He is desperately trying to hold onto his mind.
Several years prior, Chris and Michael lost Lucy – their Wife and Mother – to a brutal aneurism. Seeing his wife brain dead in hospital, Chris broke down. He begged Michael to make sure he could say goodbye to him before he passed on.
