Fiona (Julie Christie) and Grant Anderson (Gordon Pinsent) have been happily married for over forty years. When Fiona is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, they come to realize that she must live in a nursing home as she requires medical treatment. For the first time in their lives, the spouses are forced to live apart from each other. According to the rules of the medical facility, visitors are not allowed during the first month so that patients can adapt to their new environment. When Grant finally comes to visit his wife, he is shocked to discover that Fiona not only has lost all memory of him but has given her heart to another man, Aubrey (Michael Murphy), a fellow patient.
