Throughout the world, families’ lives are changed immeasurably as a consequence of dementia. But as with all aspects of our seemingly complex lives, things are not what they seem.

It has always been possible to see the very same circumstance through the depth of a wiser gaze. Lives are transformed through such a gaze.

My hope is that Olga’s experience will change the very sight you place on your own circumstance. And in doing so, change that very circumstance.

This film is metaphorical for whatever it is you are facing.


With thanks to the staff at Nursing Home Sanitas Residencial Puerta de Hierro, Madrid for their kind help during the shooting of this film. And for the way they model compassionate care.

Olga’s Place.
