Writer and literary icon, 55-year-old Jan Meerman’s successful life is thrown upside down when his 85-year-old mother Josée unexpectedly has a severe stroke. Jan no longer recognises his once lively mother as her verbal witticisms have been replaced by pitiful cries and gibberish. Faced with this decline, he loses his grip on both his personal and professional life.
