Limang taon nang binubuno ni Federico, isang 79-year old na padre-de- pamilya, ang sakit na prostate cancer. Regular ang kanyang pagpapa-check up sa doktor at todo-suporta ang kanyang pamilya sa kanyang pagpagaling. Bagama’t may kalubhaan ang sakit, hindi ito naging malaking dagok sa pamilya Guillermo, bagkus ay nagbuklod pa sa kanilang pagsasamahan. Ngunit hindi inakala ng pamilya ni Federico na isang kakaibang sakit ang dadapo sa kanya at magbabago ng landas ng kanilang buhay - ang Dementia o Alzheimer’s Disease.

Sa puntong tila susuko na ang pamilya Guillermo sa kalagayan ni Federico, isang insidente ang susubok sa kanilang katatagan at hahamon sa katibayan ng loob at isipan ni Federico. Paano kaya haharapin ni Federico ang kasalukuyan kung unti-unti nang nabubura sa kanyang isip ang kanyang mga nakaraan?
