- Synopsis / Plot
- Grant (Gordon Pinsent) and Fiona (Julie Christie) have been married for decades. They have been through rough patches, but their lives are inextricably connected and their relationship seems idyllic: they share a private language and obvious affection for one another. Now retired, they live comfortably in a house in the country, but their contentment is permanently disrupted when Fiona's memory starts to deteriorate. Determined not to saddle Grant with her declining health, she insists upon going to a rest home - which only tears Grant apart. He feels guilty about decades-old behaviour, and his state is worsened by the rules of Fiona's new residence, which demand that he not communicate or visit with her for a lengthy period of time.
