Lily and Max have been married for more than 50 years. Now they live together in a nursing home, where Max has been reliant on professional care since his stroke. Lily has been putting her own needs aside and is desperately longing for excitement and intimacy in her life. When a man known as "the Pilot" moves in next door, Lily is immediately charmed by him and his passion for life. But neither her family nor the other residents at the nursing home are fond of her new acquaintance. Misunderstood by her family and trapped in her life with Max, Lily decides to fight to escape the bars of her invisible prison and claim her freedom.Written by

Fantastic Ghita Nørby is brilliant in a strong story about dementia
This is one of the strongest movies I've ever seen that deals with old age and dementia. The film deals with several important topics, but what makes the strongest impression is how tough it is to be deprived of opportunities and dreams. Ghita Nørby is wonderful as Lily, a woman who has moved into a nursing home with her physically ill and reduced husband. We follow her sickness closely. She manages to bring out all the challenges of being old and losing control of her own life. This film should be curriculum at all nursery schools.
