Alice: Ignorance is Bliss

In 2004, Alice Whinnett was diagnosed with dementia. Over the following decade her condition naturally worsened, and everything in her world changed, all apart from how her "favourite grandson" behaved with her. In this short documentary, grandson Thomas McNaught gives a brief look at the relationship between his 84-year-old grandmother and himself, showing a lighter side to the disease that breaks so many families apart.
