The artist Herman van Hoogdalem worked with director Gijs Wanders on a series of portraits of people with dementia and their loved ones. Van Hoogdalem painted the despair, the suffering, the pain, the uncertainty, the emptiness, detachment, acquiescence and all what is impossible to describe in words. Wanders spoke with the family of the sitters and confronted the family with the painted portrait. In the conversations the focus is on the relationship between family and demented.
