Obéline, Rose, Rolande and Jacqueline look like any other elderly women. But they have Alzheimer's and are progressively losing their memories, independence and clarity. This documentary brings us into the world of these four likeable residents of the Maison Jean-XXIII in Trois-Rivières. Pauline Voisard filmed their everyday lives over two years in this special home where they are encouraged to stay active. Family members, some calm, some anxious, also confide in the filmmaker about their relatives, who, like small children, are living in a perpetual present. In a mixture of dark and light, Memory Adrift tells the story, now comic, now poignant, of these women who have kept their personalities despite their illness. A portrayal that makes us look differently at the victims of this frightening disease. In French with English subtitles.
