A dynamic Shakespearean scholar Eliot Pryne finds his intellectual powers giving way to the ravages of Alzheimer's disease. Shadows of his favorite play, King Lear, are evoked as his three daughters argue over health care options and old family history. Eliot's journey is often humurous, but our hearts are moved as we witness human consciousness being evicted from the soul.
