When actress Eszter Nagy is diagnosed with dementia, her son Cristi chooses to return home to take care of her. While trying to protect his mother from the misery of her condition and to preserve her public persona and artistic personality, Cristi’s own life starts to slip through his fingers. Eszter’s condition becomes a third character of their story, whom the two confront with humour and courage, but which will make them both start to doubt their idea of care, love and dignity.

„To witness the demise of your own consciousness seems unbearable. There are 50 million people around the world living with Alzheimer’s.Many of them have somehow made peace with their condition and have to deal with the lack of a treatment but also with social stigma. All the Things Alois Took from Me is about how we negotiate with our looming extinction.”– Cosmin Stănilă
