The Song Plays On
When the first notes of a long forgotten record play, John remembers Anne, the women he married, the woman he loved and it's as though he's 25 once more... His daughter, Alice, doesn't see it that way. She sees her Father struggling to cope day to day with dementia and she senses a distance growing between them. She fears that as John remembers Anne, he forgets her.
