When a simple choice can change your entire life, what do you chose? To know, or not to know if you have the Familial Alzheimer`s Disease? Do you, or do you not share this information with your future partner?
The vivacity of Vera`s family fades when she decides to reveal to her husband and kids that she already feels some of this affection`s symptoms, but just for a short period of time. The main characteristic they all have, subclassing the F.A.D. (Familial Alzheimer`s Disease) gene, is their ability to consciously avoid taking something too seriously, even in the most misfitting moments. Their predisposition for irony gives them a legerity that we can find only in extremely intelligent people, as the members of this family are. Thus, amongst Scrabble games, memory losses and banterings, their life continues to be extremely active.
The antinomic feelings of the characters are well expressed through music and choreography, and the variety of unexpected situations acquires a positive and motivational vibe.
