The Unraveling

World premiere

Since people grow older, dementia has become a common disease, which gradually unravels someone's personality. De Herbergier in Arnhem offers a home to people who suffer from forgetfulness and can no longer take care of themselves. We are offered a painful but also touching glimpse into the daily lives of Annie, Resi, Jan, Bob and their loved ones.
